Zodingliana Ralte is a creative midfielder, playmaker and is very good with set-pieces. He styles himself after Zinedine Zidane and started playing football at the tender age of seven. He has represented Mizoram in the under-14 Football Festival in 2007 in Goa and the under-16 Mir Iqbal Hussain Football Tournament in Haryana. He has also played for the under-19 state team.
Nicknamed ‘Adinga’, he joined Shillong Lajong in 2010 and played for their under-16 team. He has also been part of the India under-14, under-16 and under-19 set-ups. In the 2014/15 season, he ended up as Shillong’s 3rd-highest goalscorer with two goals in what was an otherwise disappointing season for the Shillong outfit.
Adinga made 10 appearances for NorthEast United FC in Hero ISL 2014 before moving to Delhi Dynamos FC the following season. He will be hoping to become a mainstay for FC Pune City in Hero ISL 2016.
