During the ‘raid’ during each play, the offensive player, called the raider, ran into the defending team and tried to tag as many members as possible. All while being in the territory of the security team and also maintaining a continuous spell of K Kdidi.


For each tagged defender, a point is scored. Stepping over the reward line while in enemy territory will result in additional points to the raid’s team.

The defensive team scores when successful in stopping the raid’s progress.


Tagged players are declared out of the game, along with players who step out of bounds.

For each score scored from the card or the next deal, a player will be revived. However, there was no recovery compared to the bonus points.

If the entire team exits at the same time, the attacking team will score two bonus points.


An empty raid is one in which the raid does not score a point. On the other hand, a super raid is one in which the raider scored three or more points.


Two consecutive empty raids means that the next raid is in a state where a ‘do or die’ raid is required and a positive score is scored. Also, when the defending team has fewer than four players, the tackles are worth 2 points.

Why is Indian football called a new phenomenon (Part 2)

More attractive than Brazil

All forms of support that football fans in Europe, especially in the UK, are decrying and criticizing for game ruin are enriched in India. Because of that, a difference between the passion of exploiting endless profits of economists, oil tycoons, billionaires who want to use football to profit against a young football background is trying hard to build the image.

Football in India and their fans are still very carefree and innocent. So when ISL suddenly became the name of attention, the heathen also began to notice and analyze this “market”.

The opening match drew 65,000 fans to Salt Lake Stadium during Atletico’s match against Mumbai City. The number of viewers watching on the TV is 74 million 700 thousand people. Particularly the first week, the tournament attracted all 170 million 600 thousand people. The ISL official website has 16 million views of videos coming back throughout the tournament. The whole site alone has 28 million 700 thousand visits.

The hashtags that have become the most used trend on Indian Twitter are all about football, like #ISLfie, #letsfootball, #fatafatifootball. In all, there are 1 million 800 conversations on Twiter and Facebook talking about ISL. The semi-final between Chennaiyin FC and Kerala Blasters drew 1 million 100 online video followers, the highest rate of any sport in India.

Merging I-League and ISL?

In fact, the official Indian tournament recognized by FIFA is now the I-league. But with the growing spread of ISL, does the Indian football federation (AIFF) need to rethink? Fans are talking about the plan to merge ISL with I-League not only to attract the audience for the Premier League but also to increase the commercial value for Indian football.

However, Novy Kapadia, an Indian football analyst, disagrees with this opinion. Perhaps AIFF or its fans should wait to see how long ISL maintains its appeal and transparency.


Why is Indian football called a new phenomenon ? (Part 1)

With the first season full of surprises, the quality of the ISL (India Super League) tournament – The Indian Super League is being considered a new phenomenon on the world football map.

The goal from the last seconds of Mohammed Rafique helped Atletico de Kolkata win the championship. At the same time, ISL is also now recognized as the tournament with the largest audience to see the fourth planet.

Famous bosses

ISL suddenly became a fan favorite after their football clubs were invested by former stars who have been very successful with other sports.

As Atletico is co-owned by former cricket star Sourav Ganguly. The team they defeated in the final was Kerala Blasters, and was given a stake by Sachin Tendulkar, who was honored as one of India’s best sports athletes of all time. When such names appear again with a new role on the football field, special effects are created, especially after the game when people shoot the scene of them hugging and telling intimate gossip.

Even Bollywood stars also appeared in the stands to enjoy the football festival atmosphere with 37,000 other fans. They clapped and cheered and rocked the DY Patil yard in Mumbai last Saturday night.

The reason for the success of African athletics (Part 2)

Clearly, the factors that make up the top athletes are much more complicated than that, not just by a dominant gene in the body. Most recently, a team of geneticists at the University of Glasgow, Scotland proposed that the genomes of the most successful athletes were combined, influenced by different genetic traits.

While waiting for the final results of the gene’s impact, another reason is given to explain that athletes from Africa often have to walk or run long distances from an early age. Stories of athletes from Ethiopia, Jamaica or Kenya walking to school about 5 to 20km have become familiar.

However, scientists in Northern Europe have demonstrated that early training does not give too many advantages to African athletes. The report shows that the Nordic athletes with VO2max (the maximum amount of oxygen that the body can load and consume in a minute) is not inferior to their African colleagues. In other words, the fitness level of African athletes is not different.

So where is the difference? Scientists believe that altitude is part of the answer. Many famous athletes of Kenya and Ethiopia were born and raised in an area of ​​2,000-2,500 m above sea level. This helps them improve the amount of hemoglobin (a protein in the blood that helps transport oxygen throughout the body) and haematocrit (the volume of red blood cells), leading to better working capacity of the muscles.

Not only that, East African athletes also have the ability to train with high intensity at this height. Iten and Addis Ababa – the two main training centers of Kenyan and Ethiopian athletes – are located at an altitude of about 2,400m above sea level.

It is the training in such strenuous conditions that helps African athletes adapt to running fast and durable without releasing much lactic acid which causes fatigue, contributing to significantly improving running performance.

There will be more research done but until now, it can be seen that the two good factors that make an important contribution to the success of African athletes come from special mechanics as well as forging ability and being trained in difficult conditions.


The reasons for the success of African athletics (Part 1)

More than 2,000 athletes from 201 countries compete for Olympic athletics medals, but on the run, the race is almost exclusively from athletes from Africa.

In recent Olympics, the content of running long and medium distance is always the gold mine of the athletes from Kenya, Ethiopia or originating from Africa. Defending champion 10,000 meters Mo Farah is an English national, but was born and lived as a child in Somalia.

Why are African athletes in general, especially the East African region, particularly outstanding at the marathons? Many people think that Africans possess a special trait in the genome.

This is a logical hypothesis if you look at the number of Olympic medals that African athletes have won over time, especially when they do not have the best facilities for training.

African athletes dominate ASIAD 17

As of the first three days of ASIAD athletics 17, 20 medal sets have been awarded. And out of these 20 events, up to 7 gold medals belong to African players.

Most of them are naturalized athletes from Africa of Middle Eastern countries like Qatar, Bahrain, UAE. Some of these athletes are even very famous in the international arena before moving to compete for the Asian countries mentioned above.

Before the absolute domination of the countries of the Middle East thanks to naturalization of African athletes, many people have criticized this. Korean athlete Kim Yong Gu said: “Korea would have won more if these African players had not played in ASIAD.”

Over the past 15 years, countless studies by scientists have been carried out to answer this question. But overall, there have been no studies that have identified specific traits in the African genome, with the exception of a few pieces of evidence that show a number of differences in body composition, such as a slender, veined figure. Calves have great resilience that helps them increase performance and running speed.
