Thulirkal : Soccer Superstar, Menan Nagulendran!

CTYA’s Blog has started a new Feature, Thulirkal. Thulirkal meaning bud reflects the young Tamil youth we will be featuring. These youth are the buds of our community, and are growing into strong, achieving young men and women! Each week we will feature a Tamil youth of the week. For more information or to suggest a youth to feature, please feel free to email us at!

This week, we’ve brought you Menan Nagulendran!

Menan Nagulendran is known for scoring the historic first goal for Tamileelam, and the subsequent 2 goals in the debut of Tamileelam F.A. in Kurdistan last year! After his hat-trick, Menan dedicated his hat-trick to: First goal four our Maaveerar, second goal to victims of genocide & oppression and third to all the supporters!! Just after the match, Menon said, “I am really humbled by all the messages of support and congratulations. This is has always been not about us the players, or the team, but about our nation. I feel so proud to have been given the opportunity to play for my nation, and I dedicate my hat-trick to them. The first goal to the great Maaveerar of our nation, the second to all the Tamils who have been victims of genocide and are still oppressed today, the last goal to all the fans of the Tamil Eelam football team.”

This month, Menan also had the chance to participate in the Tynwald Hill International Football Tournament. Let’s hear from Menan!
