A 38-year old Rubel though has no place in the national team, he remains a regular face in domestic circuit.

Rubel made his national team debut in 2008 but was dropped following poor form. He later came back to the national team again after eight years but couldn’t just cement his place.

He was however affected by a brain tumor in the last year but battled hard to survive from that.
