Chhangte, who has previously played with Delhi Dynamos FC in the ISL, will join the Indian national team camp for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers a little later than his other team-mates.
"I gained a lot as a player even though it was a very short stint. They (Vikings) play fast football and they are technically very sound, I like the way they play. It was very exciting for me to have got the opportunity to be there. Their technique was really good. They have a very good first touch. I realised how important is your first touch. They are also very professional. They even put my name in the dressing room (of the club). It was a very satisfying trial stint," Chhangte told Goal.com in a recent interview.
Due to the schedule Norwegian Eliteserien which runs till 30 November 2019, the 22-year-old Indian could sign a loan deal with an ISL club when the January transfer window opens in India.
