Even though football in India hasn’t received much-deserved fame, it is growing and getting better. The way football is perceived in India has changed and the Indian team is getting the much-deserved respect wherever it goes. Last few years have been a golden age for Indian football from finding some of the best players to doing well at the international level.
The players are doing their part and are leading the way. Recently, some of the players of the Indian Football team went on an afforestation drive near a small village named Tentha in Manipur. While many other Indian sports stars are fixed to their houses and are enjoying their time during the pandemic, these football stars have come out in support for a cause.
Some of the younger stars of the Indian football team, Renedy Singh, Suresh Wangjam, Boris Thangjam, Ninthoinganba Meetei, Salam Ranjan Singh, Pritam Nintoujam, Jeakson Singh, Malemnganba Meetei, Chinglensana Singh and few others planted a few trees in Tentha. Everyone joined in for a cause and to be part of something this big and important. The group carried out planting trees around the football ground and also in the hilly regions of the area.
With a lot of deforestation happening in India and lots of trees falling every year, the players believed that this is the best cause that they can work for. Together they have planned to plant much more samplings in other areas as a way to promote afforestation. The players were also happy that they have come out to do something specific for nature and would continue to do it more often.
In recent times, the Indian football team has been doing really well and has been finding many youngsters who are breath-taking. The new coach Igor Stimac has been bringing a lot of changes to the Indian Football team and is working harder to make his team the best.
