This is a fascinating description of the development of the game in India right from the beginning of the century when the eleventh barefooted magicians of Mohun Bagan stunned the British military sides in the IFA Shield, the continent's most famous tournament then.

In a lucid description, the book catches the dramatic moments when India won the Asian Games gold medals and ruled Asian football in the sixties. It also describes how the game faced a steady decline in the country despite huge fan following.

The book is an authentic and unique study of Indian football, which not only highlights the top players in the country, but also deals with the social aspects of the game.
