This takes the total number Minervans in the squad to 9. Minerva has already contributed 10 players to the India U-17 World Cup Squad earlier this year and now with significant contributions to the U-23 India Squad, Minerva’s scouting and Youth Development Programs are greatly benefiting the national teams.
