Gostha Pal was a right back, regarded as one of the greatest ever Indian players and arguably the best Indian defender of his era. He spent most of his career at Mohun Bagan from 1912 to 1936. He won caps for India from 1924 to the early 1930s, when his body couldn't resist to the fatigue anymore.
A fearless defender, Pal was unmatched during his era. He was nicknamed "Wall of China" due to his hugely defensive prowess and strong physique that frightened the opposing attackers. He possessed a pure tackling ability but also a keen eye to read the game properly and a remarkable ability to deliver accurate pinpoint passes despite playing barefeet. He became an icon thanks to all these qualities.
