"We need to be united in this battle and it is on our own hands to win it" says Adil Khan

Positivity is a tonic that keeps us going -- even in the darkest of times.
With the entire nation under a three-week lockdown in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 (Corona Virus) pandemic, people are required to stay home. With family-time being a luxury in the life of a professional footballer, the extended span at home is a "lift in spirits,” as Blue Tigers defender Adil Khan described.
"During the season we miss being away from our loved ones. They sacrifice so much just to keep up focused, and whatever opportunities we get to spend quality time with them and express our gratitude, it's always special,” he stated.
“The current situation is a challenging one for people across the world, and getting to spend these days at home together with my wife has raised my spirits and mood.”
It was in April last year that Adil tied the knot with Khuri Irani, a popular sports presenter, and the two of them are currently at their home in Mumbai. Khuri talked about their routine these days…

Blue Tigers join hands in India's fight against Covid-19

NEW DELHI: With Covid19 Corona virus creating havoc, several members of the Blue Tigers have come forward to lend a helping hand by contributing for the social cause.

We had a tight game in India but we will have good home support and would like to grab the three points: Erwin Koeman Oman head coach

Muscat: After the clash between hosts Oman and Bangladesh was crystal clear as the Red Warriors romped to a 4-1 win in a Group E clash of the joint 2022 FIFA World Cup and 2023 Asian Cup qualifier at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex (SQSC). Despite all the five goals coming in the second half, Oman was hardly troubled by the visiting side as local hero Ali al Habsi made a return to the playing XI after a gap of nearly an year.  Habsi led the team to a triumphant return after Oman had suffered a narrow 1-2 loss to group topper Qatar in its previous match last month. The win helped Oman, coached by Dutchman Erwin Koeman, to close the margin at the top of the group with Qatar (ten) now leading by just a single point. Afghanistan is third with four points while India has three and Bangladesh has one after four matches played by all the teams. Koeman's Red Warriors will get an opportunity to keep the pressure on Qatar when it takes on India in their next match at the same venue on Tuesda…
