Footballer Rahim Nabi eyes Arjuna Award

Dec 28 2012, 5:12am CST | by

New Delhi, Dec 28 (IANS) All India Football Federation (AIFF) player of the year Syed Rahim Nabi said that his name should be considered for the Arjuna Award.

New Delhi, Dec 28 — All India Football Federation (AIFF) player of the year Syed Rahim Nabi said that his name should be considered for the Arjuna Award.

A versatile player, the 27-year-old has been in sparkling form both for his club, Mohun Bagan, and the national side.

"Let me be honest and say that I personally feel I deserve the Arjuna Award. I have served the national team for long and with distinction. Having said that, I know it's for the mandarin who decides it," said Nabi.

Nabi represented the Indian side in a friendly against German giants, Bayern Munich. Star wingers Arjen Robben and Frank Ribery were full of praise for the full-back who was the only positive thing to come out from the 0-4 rout.

Nabi dedicated the player of the year award to his wife, who suffered head injuries in an accident July near Chinsurah as she was travelling from Kolkata to Pandua.

"I would like to dedicate this award to my wife! She has been a pillar of strength," he said.

"Besides, I would also like to thank my family, the staff and officials of AIFF and the general secretary, Kushal Das. Wim Koevermans (Indian coach) has been special to me simply for the faith which he has bestowed on me. I also need to thank the support staff of the national team squad."

Nabi said the year 2012 was one of the best in his career but felt that he had been doing well for many years.

"On the surface, 2012 has been spectacular for me. But I have had exceptional spells previously. I have played in every position my club coaches (over the years) have asked me too."

"In that sense, I feel the recognition could have come earlier as well. But no complaints, I am enjoying the moment."

Iceland vs. Netherlands: Date, Time, Live Stream, TV Info and Preview

Oct 13 2014 1:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Having survived a scare against lowly Kazakhstan on Friday, the Netherlands are back in Euro 2016 Qualifying action on Monday, as they take on Iceland. The Dutch haven’t looked convincing on their road to France so far, going down to the Czech Republic in Matchweek 1 before needing three late goals to beat the Kazakhs 3-1, so they’ll need a big improvement if they’re to dispatch the in-form Iceland in their own back ...

Iker Casillas' Quiet Resurgence Key to Growing Optimism at Real Madrid

Oct 7 2014 6:39am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It's among the most lasting images of this summer's World Cup: Iker Casillas on his knees, head down and shoulders slumped; Arjen Robben and his Dutch teammates celebrating with unbridled jubilation in the background. Netherlands 5-1 Spain. Casillas broken. The scene, said ESPN FC's Gabriele Marcotti, could have been mistaken for Picasso's painting of Guernica. Seven days later, after Casillas had endured his second humiliation against C ...

European Team of the Week: Sizzling Cristiano Ronaldo a Class Apart

Oct 6 2014 10:13am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The goalscoring form of Cristiano Ronaldo, even by his ridiculously high standards, is becoming absurd now. The Portuguese again topped WhoScored.com's ratings this weekend with yet another hat-trick—his third in four Liga games—in Real Madrid's 5-0 rout over Athletic. Ronaldo mustered 10 shots at goal in the game with eight of those hitting the target, registering an assist from a total of three key passes to secure a rating of 10 from WhoScored.
