1 November 2017

Novy Kapadia

Few people remember today that until the 1950s, India’s national football team competed with the best European teams. In this book, the sports commentator and journalist Novy Kapadia shares a lifetime’s worth of knowledge about the game, and, in the process, uncovers the forgotten history of Indian football. Barefoot to Boots, which carries a foreword by the former footballer Bhaichung Bhutia, presents riveting descriptions of on-field action, memorable matches and club rivalries, as well as interviews with legendary players and officials.
