‘India will compete with Asia's elite’

India will be able to compete against Asia's football elite in the next five to six years, John Abraham, actor and co-owner of ISL franchise NorthEast United FC, said Wednesday. ‘Currently, India is ranked 158 in the FIFA world rankings, and it will be some time before we see this ranking make an upward move. The success of the Indian Super League is important for the growth of football in the country,’ John told journalists in the state capital of Meghalaya here.  ‘We are hopeful that India will give a good fight in football to Asian countries in the next five to six years.’
