Arjun Award, Recomendations

MK Digital Line
The All India Football Federation (AIFF) has recommended Sandesh Jhingan, Jeje Lalpekhlua, and Bala Devi for the Arjuna Award for the upcoming year.

Jeje Lalpekhlua has been acting as the secondary striker to Sunil Chhetri for the Indian national team over the past decade and has been a constant during Bob Houghton, Wim Koevermans and Stephen Constantine's tenures.

Lalpekhlua has scored 90 goals across international and club football. The Mizo Sniper has played for major Indian football clubs like Pune FC (now defunct), Dempo SC, Mohun Bagan and Chennaiyin FC, distinguishing himself in the process.

Sandesh Jhingan rose to prominence when he signed up for Indian Super League (ISL) side Kerala Blasters in 2014. His performance at the Kochi-based franchise made him an instant fan favourite in Kerala and across India.

Sandesh Jhingan made his national team debut and even went on skipper the national side in a few encounters.
