    Not convinced with the selection in wing backs. Rest of it seems perfect.

    The defense still seems bit shacky but midfield is much better than before. I am happy Jobby getting his chance after stellar performance recently.

    I thought Passi was Consti's candidate, but if he makes the cut even after Consti is out, then he must be someone else's candidate, probably Abhishek Yadav, PP or Das, or may be of FSDL.

    If someone like him still populate the NT even after the change of coach, then I feel not much has changed after all. I think disillusionment is round the corner ...

    Passi wont be there in the final squad.. Igor has called most of the players from asian cup squad. Thats how passi got selected.

    It's clear from the above article that he wanted to take a look at all the players and have included the whole AFC squad . That's how Passi and German made it to the squad. Should've given Seriton a chance though.

    Sarthik Gulai, Jeje Lalpekhlua, Aashique Kuruniyan, Holicharan Narzary, Anas Ethadoika  are missing from AFC Asian Cup Roster.
    Brandon, Soosairaj, Jobby Justin have made an entry in NT probables.  These three players are fan favourites.
