Indian Football..!! Is this the rising..??

India have just finished at the last position in the ongoing AFC Asian Cup after getting a beating from Australi, Bahrain and South Korea..

We scored a total of three goals in the 3 matches that we played..

To any unknown person, a person who just follows the top teams and clubs of the world blindly and just sees a win as a proof of betterment..

But this team of Bob Houghton has achieved what other teams had never ever done in my life of Football following..

This team has made it to my hearts by the way they have played.. The way they have bravely faced the top teams of the world.. Their this attitude shows the mental development they have developed since they have begun playing the sport to its and their true nature..

It is foolish to expect a team of a ranking 142 to beat a team of 26.. But i think that finally this sport is excelling in our country..

Bhaichung Bhutia has made a team out of a bunch of good footballers.. It is a great disappointment that he was not able to play the AFC Asian Cup but still he won many hearts by his 12 minute appearance in the last league match against South Korea..

I was filled with euphoria and pride when he came on the field in the 80th minute.. The sense of joy that prevailed amongst the spectators as he came running on the field gave me goosebumps.. The people were happy to see their hero come on the field and not crying over the ongoing game.. I.M. Vijayan had rightly said,"Bhutia is God's gift to Indian Football", which this player has proved time and again..
The handing over of the arm band by Climax Lawrence also enthralled me..

The ongoing status of this game tells us a story that we have players who can match the top players in the world.. But its our responsibility to train and help them to get to that level..

Sunil Chhetri's association with the Kansas City is a proof that if tried a little harder, Indian Football can again reach and even surpass its Golden period of the 60's.. But it needs inspiration and support from its own countrymen who take out a little time out of watching Cricket and give it to Football..

  4. when people will stop blindly following the games which are so called "cool", and would like to watch how their nation is playing football, the condition will improve, there is never shortage of talent for anything in india, earlier, the indian cricket team was also facing these situations, but when people supported, it improved, and the same can happen with the football too.
