    Manvir Singh , who was rated as the worst player in Asian Cup 2023 , having a tremendous game against JFC . 
    Makes me think , Constantine found Manvir Singh from I league when he was unknown in Indian football circuit and now we have Stimac who moans about lack of strikers but he's never in the country or at football games .
    Not sure why are you praising him so much.  You will get know his true picture,  if we take out their foriegners,  mainly Petratos. Our NT needs strikers and not wingers. Also he is never a good winger & it's just a one good game for him. Also he doesn't trust Indian players,  most of his passes to foreign players. Petratos is one of the top player in ISL. Also Kauko & Boumous gamble is working for MB.

    What I meant to say is that Stimac might find solutions to the NT striker issue if he looks beyond ISL . 
    Though Manvir is a winger , his discovery was a similar case. Agree with you about the fact that he has got terrific strikers in front of him but he has got the most assists in ISL this season and he has been decent .

    ISL 2023-24: LEAGUE SHIELD RACE, PLAYOFFS QUALIFICATION SCENARIOS EXPLAINED

    The Indian Super League (ISL) 2023-24 season is panning out to be one of the most intensely fought campaigns in the league’s history with multiple teams contesting for the top spot and the final playoff position. 

    Only six points separate the top five teams while the chasing pack behind them consisting of six teams has just four points dividing them. 

    As we enter the final phase of the league season, here’s a look at what each team needs to secure a playoff berth and for those in contention, what they need to win the League Shield.

    Odisha FC, Pos: 1, Pl: 18, Pts: 35

    What OFC need to qualify for the playoffs? - Qualified for the playoffs

    What OFC need to win the League Shield? - The Kalinga Warriors don’t have their fate in their own hands despite being top of the league as they have played more matches than their rivals. They need the Mariners to drop five more points, the Islanders to drop four more points and the Gaurs to fail to win any one of their remaining matches to win the League Shield only if they win all their remaining matches. 

    Mumbai City FC, Pos: 2, Pl: 17, Pts: 35

    What MCFC need to qualify for the playoffs? - Qualified for the playoffs

    What MCFC need to win the League Shield? - The Islanders will win the League Shield if they win their remaining matches.

They can also defend their crown if they draw against the Mariners, win their other matches and the Kolkata giants drop points in any other match. 

    Mohun Bagan Super Giant, Pos: 3, Pl: 16, Pts: 33
