Not Just for Kicks: Football fans in Chitrakoot weigh in on the FIFA World Cup and their own lack of infrastructure

Jul, 12 2018 IST

In Chitrakoot, we meet with Sagar Soni, a football player just shy of 15, who spends six hours on the field daily, four before and two after school. Plus, he is at the grounds for practice in the wee hours of Sunday, every Sunday, and teaches younger children twice a week. He’s been following the World Cup closely and was rooting for two favourite teams, Portugal and Spain, until both crashed out. Come Sunday, he’s going with France, probably.
