IANS logoIANS 15-05-2017

Bhaduri had led the legendary Mohun Bagan team that became the first Indian team to beat a British team in the final of a major tournament when they got the better of East Yorkshire Regiment 2-1 in the 1911 IFA Shield.

"I was very curious to discover the country and its people. It gives me immense joy to confer this honour," Puyol told the media.

The former FC Barcelona captain was the star central defender of the Spain team that defeated the Netherlands 1-0 in the final of the 2010 World Cup.
