On December 5, 2004, he was a part in an altercation that resulted in the death of Dempo forward Cristiano Junior during the 2004 Federation Cup final versus Dempo. However, as a result of the tragedy, the alarming lack of resources and medical personnel during the game was brought to light, and this had a major impact on the I-League.

Paul was a key member of Baichung Bhutia’s winning Indian team at the 2007 Nehru Cup and was known for his adept goalkeeping. India made it to the event finals for the first time thanks to his saves in the semi-final match against Kyrgyzstan. India met Syria in the championship game, a team they had previously lost to in the group round. Together with Mahesh Gawli of Goa and other defenders, he and the pre-match favourites, Syria, in this encounter, fended off each successive wave of onslaught.


In 2016, he was presented with the Arjuna Award, the highest-ranking sporting honour in India. At the 2011 AFC Asian Cup, he served as the Indian football team’s goalkeeper. He was one of the team’s stars after making more than 35 saves during the entire competition. Pal made a strong first impression on the new coach during the 2011–12 I–League season, but his form soon started to wane. Prayag United fell to I-League underdog Sporting Goa on December 29, 2012. After the aforementioned setback, his side lost five and drew one of the following seven games, which was enough for his coach to decide to switch Subrata with Sangram Mukherjee for the season’s remaining league games.
