Indian Footballers in Foreign Leagues

To play in the top European leagues where the best players in the world play, that's the dream of every budding footballer. Mohammed Salim is believed to be the first Indian to have taken that route when he made the journey to join Scottish giants Celtic FC way back in 1930s. Many followed him, sometimes initially on trials, but only a few have managed to earn a professional contract, like Baichung Bhutia, Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, Bala Devi and Sunil Chhetri to name a few.

This thread is to discuss Indian footballers plying their trade abroad.
