Indian Super League best XI: Coro, Ogbeche lead team of the season

Bengaluru beat Goa 1-0 in the final to claim their maiden ISL title on Sunday. But who were ISL's best players this season? Here's our team of the tournament.

GK - Gurpreet Singh Sandhu (Bengaluru FC)

India's No.1 goalkeeper kept his seventh clean sheet of the season in the final -- ahead of Pawan Kumar and Amrinder Singh, who both had six each. Without John Johnson for the first time in their history, Bengaluru didn't always have a confident backline, and Sandhu's solidity made a huge...

No 'magic' in Mumbai, but Bengaluru have last laugh as ISL finale turns scrappy

Both Carles Cuadrat and Sergio Lobera had wanted to showcase the magic of football in the ISL final. It was supposed to be a match-up between the two best ball-playing sides in the country, the two most entertaining. For large parts of 117 minutes, the magic was difficult to spot on the pitch.

But with penalties on the cards, and the air sticky with tension, Rahul Bheke rose above everyone else in the 118th minute to guide Bengaluru FC to their maiden ISL title. Just two minutes away from the cruelty...

Bengaluru FC (BFC) rode on a late Rahul Bheke goal to win their maiden Indian Super League (ISL) title against 10-man FC Goa in Mumbai on Sunday. As a corner was played in deep by Dimas Delgado in the 117th minute, Bheke positioned himself perfectly to turn the ball into the top left corner beyond the Goa goalkeeper's reach. It kissed the edge of the post and crept in.

Bengaluru, who were runners-up in their maiden ISL season last year, have thus become the first team to have won the ISL after having...

United by styles, Lobera and Cuadrat hope to see 'magic of football' in ISL final

Ahead of Sunday's ISL final, Sergio Lobera (manger, FC Goa) and Carles Cuadrat (manger, Bengaluru FC) spoke to the press separately, but they might as well have released a joint statement. Both managers' messages were remarkably similar.

How confident are Goa considering their recent exploits in the Mumbai Football Arena?

- "What happened is in the past, the final is different," said Lobera.

Will Bengaluru draw extra motivation from their 3-0 thrashing of Goa?

- "Not really, no. It's a final, and...

Goa enjoy themselves to humiliate Mumbai City in the first leg

It's minute 76. FC Goa's Hugo Boumous has just come on. Playing a series of quick one-twos, he moves into the box where he takes a slightly heavy touch. Sensing an opening, Mumbai City's Joyneur Lourenco dives in. Just as he's about to nick the ball away, Boumous flicks it over the sprawled, stunned centre back before smacking it at Amrinder Singh. No goal, but that flick was pure magic. 

Goa were in the mood as they smashed five past the Mumbai City goal, but if someone had to pick out one...

Barcelona, tiki-taka trigger India's own Spanish evolution

February 6, 2019, the clock reads 54:08. Bengaluru FC 0 - 2 Kerala Blasters.

Under pressure, BFC goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, receives the ball. Sixteen seconds and seven passes later, Sunil Chhetri forces a smart save from Dheeraj Singh at the other end. In that time, the ball has rarely lost contact with the Kanteerava grass. The move will only be recorded as a shot on target in a match that ended 2-2. It may not even make a tightly packaged highlights reel.

Why, then, was that brief passage...
