As IFN is about to enter 10 years since its origin in early 2011, and during these lockdown period, I came upon an article regarding a player in Arsenal named Thomas Cruise who played just once for the first team I thought of many players who at the time in youth were once considered a bright prospect but faded from the limelight due to various reasons.
This name striked me because I had read his debut news which was hyped because of the name getting famous because of actor Tom Cruise in The Sun newspaper online when I was in computer lab in college days playing fantasy premier league.
So creating a thread for Indian players to see where they are. Are they even playing football?

Former I-League winner Bineesh Balan who played for Churchill Brothers and Pune FC now works as a daily wage labourer. His career got derailed due to injury. The last major club he played was Pune FC in the 2014-15 season. He was unsold in the 2015 ISL auctions. He failed to get a government job.

It takes all sorts to make a world.
