The selection of the two players of the I-League second-division side
Bengaluru United comes on the back of their strong performances in the recently concluded Bangalore Super Division League 2020-21 in March, in which they emerged champions.
Centre-back Primus has been an integral part of the FC Bengaluru United setup since the I-league qualifiers in October 2020. He played a key role in the club’s triumph journey in Bangalore Super Division League 2020-21, scoring the winner in the final league game.
Striker Carr too shone with his goal-scoring abilities.
“Robert was with us when his initial call-up to the [T&T] national team came in March. It is a tremendous story for us to be a part of where he has made a return to the Soca Warriors after seven years," said Richard Hood, head coach, FC Bengaluru United.
