When people speak of sports in India, it is often cricket that comes to mind. After all cricket is an extremely popular sport and an integral part of the country’s social culture. But with all the importance showered on cricket, people tend to forget that there are other sports that are equally popular and adored by the Indian populous. One such happens to be Football.
