Bhubaneswar: Odisha’s very own boy from Sundargarh Dipsan Tirkey with spring in his legs is excited to make his debut in the international hockey and that too his home turf Bhubaneswar.
Though, the young Odia boy donned the Indian jersey in the Europe tour this year, he will be playing his maiden tournament in Bhubaneswar during the Hockey World League Finals scheduled to be held from December 1 to December 10 at Kalinga Stadium here.
“This is my first international tournament at home. I have been waiting for this dream moment for a very long time. I have played Hockey India League matches here but HWL will be very special,” said Disshan.
Born in a not so rich tribal family in Sundargarh district, Dipsan hogged headlines for his performance in the junior team as well as Hockey India League. He was also part of the team which clinched the Junior World Cup and Asia Cup-2017.
