A Billion strong and In the past 68 years we have no representation on the world stage of football.
How do we feel about this as Indians? Ashamed? At a loss? Frustrated?!!
We are a highly patriotic breed of people! But does one win their dignity without putting up a struggle for it?
It took us years of bloodshed and awakening to build up to our independence.
And it's going to take dedication, changing mindsets, money and a return to grass root development to change the state of Indian football.
This is our endeavor at Awadh Mutineers. We are and will change Indian football for better !
