I-League champion Gaurav Bora could be India's next 'big' thing

On Friday, when India play Uzbekistan in the AFC U-23 qualifiers, a young man whose life has turned upside down over the last five months could be taking the biggest step of his career. Unknown across Indian football even a couple of months ago, Gaurav Bora, I-League winner with Chennai City this season, could feature in the Indian defence. His coach Derrick Pereira believes he can go on to play for the senior national side, "and then take it to another level."

Minerva Punjab's no-show latest chapter in Super Cup's fading relevance for I-League clubs

In keeping with their announcement earlier this week, Minerva Punjab did not show up for their opening game of the Super Cup against FC Pune City in Bhubaneswar on Friday. Six other I-League clubs have also threatened to withdraw, and Churchill Brothers are understood to be unsure about participation.

Mohun Bagan's visit to Chennai a tale of contrasting seasons

'Bagan's visit to Chennai could decide the title.'

Until a few seasons ago, anyone reading that headline would have assumed it's about Mohun Bagan's chance to close in on the title with a win at Chennai.

This season, it's just the opposite. Not only are Chennai favourites to beat Bagan and move a step closer to an unlikely title, the fixture itself tells the story of the two teams' contrasting seasons.

A win could take Chennai eight points clear of East Bengal and Real Kashmir [though Kashmir play...

Remaining: Goa (h) - Feb 21, Jamshedpur (a) - Feb 27

Jamshedpur's defeat to Pune on Saturday confirmed Bengaluru's place in the last four. While they'd still want to finish top, they can afford to experiment and rest a few regulars in their remaining fixtures. Delhi Dynamos have been irresistible...

What India's new U-23 coach Derrick Pereira brings to the table

The All India Football Federation (AIFF) has confirmed that Derrick Pereira has been appointed the coach of the Indian U-23 team, replacing national coach Stephen Constantine, who stepped down after India's exit from the AFC Asian Cup in January.

Almoez Ali scored with a spectacular overhead kick for a record ninth goal of the Asian Cup to set Qatar on their way to a first continental title with a stunning 3-1 win over four-times champions Japan on Friday.

Ali's early goal took him past Ali Daei's 1996 tally and, combined with a 27th minute strike from Abdulaziz Hatem and a late Akram Afif penalty, helped the Qataris make an emphatic statement ahead of their hosting of the 2022 World Cup.
