About Subrata Pal Subrata Pal (born 24 December 1986), often known as Subrata Paul, is an Indian football player, currently the goalkeeper of India national football team and Pune FC. He has previously played with the Tata Football Academy club, but rose to prominence with the leading Kolkata-based football club Mohun Bagan AC. In August 2007, he was part of the Indian team that won the Nehru Cup International Football Tournament 2007 for the first time.Cristiano Junior's Death In the 2004 Federation Cup (India) final, Pal was playing as goalkeeper for Mohun Bagan at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium, Bangalore. The Brazilian Cristiano Junior, striker of the opponent team Dempo Sports Club, Goa collided with Pal near the goal post while scoring his (and his team's) second goal. Immediately thereafter, Cristiano staggered off the field and lay down, and subsequently died in hospital. Initial media reports suggested Pal had "nearly bumped into Junior with his hand apparently hitting the Brazilian striker". A detailed post-mortem was conducted at the Victoria Hospital and Forensic Science Laboratory, Bangalore which confirmed that Cristiano had "died of cardiac arrest following over-exertion and excitement". Nonetheless, Subrata Pal was suspended for two months. Subsequently, two more post-mortems were conducted in Brazil, which also came to similar conclusions. The Mohunbagan Club Fan website in an unreferenced March 2005 report said that: "Fresh report from Brazil shows Christiano Junior was injured before the final match of Federation Cup with Mohun Bagan. He was injured at the spine and he should not fielded at the match". It is said that since the incident, he has matured considerably as a player, and is far less aggressive on the field.
