Subhash Singh's blistering pace is a joy to behold

Subhash Singh is a veteran of the I-League, having played for clubs like East Bengal, Shillong Lajong, Mumbai, and Pune.

The Manipuri winger currently plays for NEROCA, and what makes him unique is his blistering pace as winger, and his high work rate.

Moreover, Singh can change positions frequently and shield the ball from defenders, something which makes him a threat to any opposition.

Lalrindika Ralte

Lalrindika Ralte is one of I-League's best talents

East Bengal's beloved Dika is one of the most creative Indian footballers right now.

Great coaches like Trevor Morgan, Armando Collaco and others believe he is one of the best left footers in the Indian football circuit.

Besides his creativity in midfield, the Mizoram native also has the quality of going for screamers and scoring goals from 30 yards away.

Samuel Lalmuanpuia

Shillong Lajong's Samuel Lalmuanpuia can easily be called the best Indian player in the I-League.

The 20-year-old has potential to become a footballing legend.

He has great vision, passing ability, and also understands positioning far better than what his age would permit.

Despite this season not being that fruitful either for Samuel or Shillong, he is still someone to keep an eye out for.
