At the same time, a player with a height of 6 ft. 3″ will also be a dangerous header from set-pieces. And when you have got a set-piece taker like Marcelinho, then having a player like Jacob Tratt as the emergency attacker is really going to be a delightful watch.

Jacob Tratt has also got a pretty good senior career record so far. In 97 appearances, he has got 5 vital goals for his teams in the Hyundai A-League.

Now, its time for him to show-up his defending skills for Odisha FC but this is actually going to be a challenging one since, playing as a defender in a tournament where clinical strikers like Sunil Chhetri, Roy Krishna, Ogbeche, Corominas, Valskis are among the fan favourites and this isn’t an easy job to execute.
