With Indian Football on a roll it’s hard to take a pick, but nevertheless, here are the 5 whom I am looking forward to watching. 
1. Gurpreet Singh Sandhu: He has improved big time as a Goalkeeper since I first saw him in the National Team in 2011. I was then the Captain and we were preparing for the AFC Asian Cup Doha 2011. Post his stint in Norway he has improved leaps and bounds on his interception and reading of the game. He looks much matured and with more experience can go on to be one of the best Goalkeepers India has ever produced.

2. Udanta Singh: They call him ‘flash’ for his speed as many a connoisseur predicts him to be the next big star of Indian Football. But for that he needs to work more on his finishing. Till now Udanta was playing under Sunil Chhetri’s shadow and this ISL will be an acid test for him. There were be eyeballs on him and it’s up to him to handle it with poise. 

3. Rowllin Borges: He has been a regular with the National Team and had an exceptional year with NEUFC last season. Borges is a tactically sound player who can build up the play and also cover up for the defence when the opponents are counter attacking. He is getting better with experience but needs to get sharper. 

4. Bikash Jairu: He is a highly talented winger who has the pace and can deliver the ball in the right places. Sharp and incisive, Jairu has been unlucky with injuries and his biggest challenge will be to stay fit. Playing for Jamshedpur FC, he is one who can make a difference. – TCM
