'Irreplaceable' Sunil Chhetri not going anywhere - Igor Stimac

Igor Stimac, the head coach of the Indian national football team, feels that captain Sunil Chhetri is "playing like a 29-year-old" and remains irreplaceable for the next few years.

The 35-year-old Chhetri hasn't scored in the last three games of the 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign. His last goal for India came in the 1-2 loss to Oman in September.

Asked if he has found any player in India who can replace Chhetri in the future, Stimac said, "I don't know why people mention about replacing Sunil,...

Bangladesh, who produced a spirited away performance, especially when defending, had taken the lead through Saad Uddin in the 42nd minute, and had a few more opportunities to double the lead in the second half, but were left to rue tired bodies and minds that switched off for one...

Run, Ashique, run: The Kerala speedster who turned India's premier trickster

If Ashique Kuruniyan's value to the Indian team could be captured in one phase of play, look no further than the first half India played against Thailand at the AFC Asian Cup in January 2019, in Abu Dhabi.

Sunil Chhetri sprinted over to take a throw-in, and as he looked around for support, Ashique, who had started the match in attack in a surprise promotion ahead of Jeje Lalpekhlua, sprinted up to get in line with the central defender marking him. Chhetri released the ball deep into the corner,...
