He was selected by scouts from the Boca Juniors Football School India (BJFSI), which is associated with one of the premier football clubs in the world, Club Atletico Boca Junior, Argentina.

Obviously Shane was over the moon and delighted that he was picked for the training stint in Argentina. “I am very excited and looking forward to going to Argentina. It is going to be one of the best experiences in my life and I am very happy. I thank, The Sports Gurukul and BOCA Football School, for giving me this opportunity to train with them and I am certain that it would greatly help me to improve my skills and game.”

On the occasion Jay Shah, Co Founder and Director of The Sports Gurukul said, “This is the most exciting times for us. We are very proud that our mission for football has started on a good note and Shane being the first talent from Mumbai and we will be scouting for many more.”

Antonio Lopez Cortes, Head coach Boca football Schools Mumbai said: “It was a really tough decision.
