What did we learn from the Intra Squad Match : A Technical Review

Despite continuous rains, yesterday was a great day for Mumbai Football fans. Few of the die hard Indian Football fan got the opportunity to watch Intra Squad practice match from the stands. For fans nationwide, AIFF arranged Facebook live but the due to the poor quality. We hardly could recognise the players , let alone the gameplay and techniques. But to the delight of our audience, we had our correspondent in the stand and hence we could bring you a technical review.

India was divided into India Blue and India white.

India Blue starting eleven was consisted of players who have regular part of India since Constantine time. Adil and Mandar Rao was the exceptions. These were the players who started for India Blues


Kotal, Jhingan, Adil, Bose

Pronoy, Thapa, Udanta, Mandar

Balwant , Chhetri

On the other hand India White was made up of relatively new called ups and junior players. This is how they lined up.

Amrinder Singh

Bheke, Nerendra Gahlot, Anwar Ali, Nishu

Vinit, Amarjit, Sahal

Poojary, Chhangte, Soosairaj.

After few minutes of the match, Sandesh and Pronoy got injured and replaced by Salam Ranjan and Anas respectively. The extent of injury of the players is still not known. These were not the only substitution, as most of the players of the squad got some game time during the match. There were lots of substitution through out the match. Brandon , Raynier etc were few exceptions.

The match ended draw with the scoreline reading 2-2.

Chhangte opened the scoreline for India White. It was equalised by Mandar Rao, Mandar punished India white for a big defensive lapse by Bheke and Gahlot. Soon after that India white again took the lead courtesy to brilliant finish by Farukh. However this time again India white could not hold on to the lead as Udanta equalised for India blue towards the dying minutes.

Now coming to the technical part, this is how both teams were lined up and played accordingly.
