Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatars Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the grassroots level.
I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics, Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Arrows take on Prayag in I-League

Kolkata - Prayag United SC will look to to carry on their impressive run in the I-League this season when they take on Pailan Arrows in a sixth round match at the Salt Lake Stadium here Sunday.

Prayag had scripted the second biggest win in the previous round by beating United Sikkim FC 10-1 a day when new Dutch coach Eelco Schattorie made his debut.

"Such wins do not happen every day. It will be a new game where we would like to regain the momentum," said the Arrows’ Australian coach Arthur Papas.

The developmental side of the All India Football Federation has been one of the revelations of the tournament so far, having amassed a record that will put any senior team in the tournament to shame.

Arrows had an unbeaten run for 10 matches before losing the first match of the season against Pune FC in the previous round.

“We will definitely look for a win at our home ground. It will motivate the team ahead of a couple of away matches after the sixth round,” Papas said.

After back-to-back wins at home in the first two rounds, Arrows played two ‘away’ draws before meeting their match in Pune.

Papas hopes the team will get back winning ways

Assessing the opponent, Papas was wary of the versatility of the Prayag's Costa Rican World Cupper Carlos Hernandes.

“Carlos is more dangerous than Ranty (Martins),” said Papas putting the attacking-midfielder ahead in terms of effectiveness than the Nigerian striker, who currently is the leading scorer of the tournament with 11 goals to his name.

“My side will aim for full points from the home match,” said Schattorie insisting on an attack-oriented approach against the youthful opponent. “I have not seen Arrows play but have watched some of their games on video. That won’t be much of a problem if my side sticks to its own plan,” Schattorie said.
