ACTRESS AISHWARYA RAI BACHCHAN, ready with her Bollywood comeback vehicle "Jazbaa", will add a dose of glamour to the opening ceremony of Indian Super League (ISL) in Chennai on October 3 by performing on a medley of her songs.
CHOOSING TO STAY AT HOME for the pre-season, Peter Taylor has chosen to go against the tide. But training at home can result in tangible advantages that give Kerala Blasters an edge.
IN A LOGIC DEFYING DECISION, AIFF has decided to cancel Team India's preparatory camp ahead of their upcoming World Cup Qualifier match. To add to that, Chennaiyin FC manager Materazzi said he may not release players for the national team. Indian football has reached a juncture where ISL gets preference over the national team itself.
THE SEMI FINALISTS of the inaugural edition of the ISL, Kerala BlastersÂ have added some young and fresh talent to their side alongside the experienced guys. Though they might not have had extensive careers, these players are noteworthy because they come with talent honed from a very young age. One can expect few of these to shine during the 2015 season.Â Let's take look at these players, to see what makes them unique and separates them from the rest.
EVEN BEFORE THE SEASONÂ has kicked off, Kerala Blasters was dealt the first blow when their marquee player, Carlos Marchena, has injured himself and is likely to miss the first season's finalist's opener against NorthEast United FC at the Nehru Stadium in Kochi on October 6.
KERALA BLASTERS home ground, Kochi's Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, is ready to be packed full of fans as ISL 2 kick-off comes nearer.
KERALA BLASTERS FC have some top class Indian players who have the experience, talent, as well the youth factor, which will only be polished under the veteranÂ coach Peter Taylor. The key performers amongst these, whom Taylor would turn to time and again, includes the best Indian player during ISL'sÂ inaugural season.Â
TOP PLAYERS AND MANAGERS in the glitzy Indian Super League (ISL) believe the tournament's duration should be extended to really reap its benefits. ISL stretches for around three months and the likes of Brazilian legend Zico, who manages the FC Goa franchise feels Indian players are getting to learn very little in such a short time.
