Although the Indian football has been weak for a long time, in the past two years, there have been signs of a renewed rise. It is interesting to say that some netizens said that this may be because of China's relationship.

Tracing back to history, Indian football is very broad. In Asian football, their qualifications are very old and the starting point is very high. The Battle of Placy in 1757 laid the final foundation for Britain to completely defeat France's power in India. The victory made the British East India Company gain huge benefits and gain hegemony in Bangladesh. Since then, India has gradually become a British colony. This colonial history lasted for 200 years, and India did not declare independence until the middle of the 20th century.

It was also during the colonization that the seeds of football were buried in India. In the second half of the 19th century, football was brought to India by British colonists. It was popular among British troops. The center of British Indian capital Kolkata, football gradually spread in India.

In 1911, Indian football ushered in the first high light moment. The Indian Football Association Shield (IFA Shield) is India's first football event and the fourth oldest football game in the world. In the first 20 years, the British team ruled the event and won all the championships. The Indian team Mohun Bagan became the first team to break the monopoly, defeating the well-equipped East Yorkshire Regiment in the finals of the year. Be aware that most of the players in the Mohen Bagan team even play barefoot in the game. Playing barefoot has become a symbol of Indian football for a long time.

Because of the early start and the large number of people, Indian football entered a glorious period in the 1950s, and dominated in Asia, even known as the "Asian Brazil team." In the London Olympics in 1948, the Indian team that played barefoot and the European team in France were evenly matched. Until the end, they lost their regrets because of two losses. In the 1950 World Cup in Brazil, India reached the finals, but the legend was dissatisfied with the international The Football Association demanded the "must wear shoes" rule and refused to participate in the competition; in 1951, the Indian Asian Games, India's greatest coach Rahim began to coach, and led the team to defeat Afghanistan, Iran, won the gold medal; 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games India’s historic crowning fourth, also became the first Asian team to enter the semi-finals of the Olympic men’s soccer event.

At the Olympics, the Indian team played barefoot and played against France.

Shortly after the success of the Indian team in the Asian Games in Jakarta in 1962, the meritorious coach Rahim passed away and the Indian football began to fall. From the perspective of the entire social environment, there are two reasons. One is the mainstream status of cricket. In India, cricket is in the position of the national ball, and its strength in the world is obvious. The degree of commercialization of cricket in the country is also very high, which greatly squeezes the space for football development. The second is the shackles of religious culture, which has led to serious obstacles to the development of Indian football and even sports. In Indian culture, athletes belong to the "lower stream" occupation, and are rejected by the vast majority of society. Occasionally, young people with excellent talents and open minds are often smashed by their families and tribes in the cradle because of the lack of “individual” and “collectivism” in Indian society. Under such a social trend, Indians are rarely involved in sports, let alone unpopular football.

The turning point of modern Indian football is 2013, and this has to mention Chinese football. Because of the two major events that took place this year, the first international media tycoon Murdoch teamed up with India’s richest man, the real estate company’s owner, Ambabar, to launch the Indian Football Super League in late 2013. Second, after the national football lost to Thailand, India The slogan of "three or five years to catch up with China" shouted by the media.

Why do you want to call Chinese football? Because many Indians have a mentality - it is said that India always has a natural comparison with China and likes to compare with China. Why is there such a psychology? I have to talk about the origins of the two countries.

Some experts in the field of history have talked with the author about a few points, which is quite interesting. First, the same as the four ancient civilizations, Indians believe that they have advantages in culture, history, and national development; second, they are both Asian powers, and India believes that population resources are not worse than China. Although India's land area is only one-third of China's size, they believe that they have not fully liberalized their development. Once their demographic dividends are released, India will soon surpass China and become a world power. Of course, their own advantages are not limited to these. Indians believe that social welfare is superior to China. The “generic drug” manufacturing and software industries are among the best in the world...

Indian National Football Team


 
On January 6, 2019, in a contest of Group A of the 2019 Asian Cup group match, Thailand lost 1 to 4 to India. The picture shows the starting lineup of the Indian men's soccer team.

India also attaches great importance to the development of football. India has invested in real money in the league, including Piero, Louis Garcia, Trezeguet, Pires, Carlos and other stars have gone to India to play; the national power to develop the national team echelon, the world ranking from 2015 In 173, the lowest valley in March began to sing all the way, and once won the 94th, which set the best record in history. In just two years, the ranking has increased by nearly 80.

In August last year, India's U16 defeated Iraq in Jordan. A few hours later, U20 defeated "Pampas' future eagle" Argentina in Spain. These two victories have injected a lot of blood into Indian football, and even the All India Football Federation (AIFF) is excited to claim that it is "historic." Looking at this Asian Cup, the Indian men's team met the Thai team like a chicken blood, I feel that I am afraid that the Chinese men's football team lost to Thailand, how much is related! As if to say, you lost to Thailand 1 to 5, we won Thailand 4 to 1!

However, domestic football players are not optimistic about the current development model of football in India. On the one hand, India is currently investing in a small number of players, rather than a more general infrastructure and youth training program; on the other hand, although the Indian professional league is heavily invested, the system is not perfect.

At least one thing is certain. In the face of China’s eternal benchmarking goal, the motivation of Indian football will certainly exist for a long time. If this year's Asian Cup national football team is lucky enough to meet India again, I believe it is also a very good show.
