Kolkata: East Bengal today announced the signing of Costa Rican defender Johnny Acosta Zamora, who was part of his national team's campaign in the ongoing World Cup in Russia.

“East Bengal are one of the biggest clubs of India with a very rich heritage. I want to deliver my best for my new club and be part of Indian football," said the 34-year-old footballer.

“My aim is to encourage the other Indian footballers and guide them and at the same time win silverware for Quess EastBengal FC," added Acosta, who played in all their three group matches in Russia.

Acosta has 69 international caps to his name and has scored two goals as his signing for the upcoming season will give the red-and-gold a big boost.
At the World Cup, he had eight clearances and recovered the ball 11 times.
