Ranchi: Ace drag-flicker Sandeep Singh continues to face the axe from Indian team despite emerging as the highest scorer in inaugural Hockey India League (HIL) with chief coach Michael Nobbs saying that the former skipper has to "reinvent" himself as a defender if he desires to make a comeback in the national side.

Nobbs said penalty corner conversions alone can't guarantee Sandeep a place in the national team as he has to improve his key area of the game, i.e. defence, by leaps and bounds to earn his spot back.

"He (Sandeep) might have scored 11 goals but you need to see how many penalty corners he has managed to utilize," Nobbs told PTI in an exclusive chat.
