    Many present and former cricketers have become soccer club owners in India! Is it good for the game?

    Indian Hockey League has definitely helped Indian hockey as international performances show... Asian Games gold and now the colts win Sultan Johor Cup.
    Definitely the Indian Soccer League should boost quality of Indian football also.
    Way to go!!

    India win South Asian Women's Championship - FIFA.com
    :first:
    India have clinched their third South Asian Women's Football Championship, thrashing Nepal 6-0 in a one-sided final in Islamabad. Ngangom Bala Devi was the star of the show, bagging four goals and running the Nepalese defence ragged. The win cements India's place as the dominant force in women's football in the region - they have won all three editions of the championship since it was launched in 2010. India and Pakistan are normally bitter rivals in sport, but Devi said support from the home crowd had inspired her. "I am feeling so good to score four goals today. I received so much love here in Pakistan that made me improve my performance," she told AFP after the match. It was the first high-profile regional women's sports event in Pakistan, but the home side made little impression on the tournament. Indian captain Oinam Bembem, who is retiring, voiced her jubilation at ending her career on such a high note. "I am very happy to lead my team to three-time title victories in the SAFF championship. I am more happy because I am retiring from the SAFF championship after this and I am leaving at a good point," she said. Bembem also praised Pakistan, saying they had put a good show despite their inexperience - though they went out in the first round.

    Stephen Constantine Appointed Head Coach of Indian Football Team

    Englishman Stephen Constantine was on Friday appointed head coach of Indian men's football team, paving the way for his return at the helm of affairs for the second time. Constantine, 52, who is also be the coach of the India Under-23 national team, is expected to take charge from the first week of next month. "All India Football Federation confirms the appointment of Mr. Stephen Constantine as the Head Coach of the Senior Men's National Team of India. Mr. Constantine will also be in charge of the India U-23 National Team," the AIFF said in a release. Constantine was India coach from 2002 till 2005, during which the national team won the LG Cup in Vietnam and finished runners-up in the Afro Asian Games. He was the head coach of the Rwanda national team before he was offered the India job. According to sources, Constantine will get significantly lower salary than what his predecessor Wim Koevermans was getting. Dutchman Koevermans reportedly got around USD 20,000 per month before he left the job recently after a just over two-year stint. The name of Constantine, who has coached the national teams of Nepal, Malawi and Sudan, besides Rwanda, was recently cleared by the AIFF Technical Committee headed by former captain Bhaichung Bhutia. He got the nod ahead of former New Zealand coach and India Super League franchise side NorthEast United FC coach Ricki Herbert mainly due to his earlier Indian experience. The Englishman guided the Africans to their highest-ever world ranking of 68 in last month's FIFA Rankings.
