Five Best Players In ISL This Season So Far: Football, as a sport, has been growing in popularity among the Indian population. Along with it comes an increase in the quality of the sport in our country. Our Indian football team is a testament to these words, rising through 60 FIFA ranks over the past 4 years. The Indian Super League (ISL) has been a key ingredient in instigating this growth.
This year’s ISL is the sixth edition of its kind, offering nail biting action and exquisite football like we have never seen before. Among the collective contribution of all the players and staff, there have been standouts that make this tournament a spectacular one to watch. So here are the top five players of this year’s ISL season so far:
1. David Williams – Atletico De Kolkata (ATK)
This gritty Australian has been firing the goal with terrific vigour this season. Slotting in 3 goals and setting up 1, he has been a crucial player towards ATK’s journey to the top of the ISL Points table. Pairing up splendidly with Roy Krishna up front, he has made his side the joint top scoring team in the league with 10 goals in just 4 matches. Hero of the month for October and quite deservedly so.
2. Ferran Corominas – FC Goa
Showing no signs of slowing down for his age, the Spaniard has displayed a brilliant performance every time he has stepped on the pitch and kept his side fighting and in the top 4. The top scorer in the league’s history and twice the golden boot winner, the veteran has brought a distinct flavour to his team’s performance and correspondingly, to the league. To add to his team’s success, he will be keen in taking home the trophy that he has been so relentlessly fighting for.
3. Sergio Castel – Jamshedpur FC
Jamshedpur FC are a side not to be taken lightly this season. They have won 2 and drawn 1 of their 4 games and we would be lying if we say that Sergio Castel didn’t contribute to it. He has stacked up 3 goals for the team and is the highest rated player in the league so far this season. In addition to playing a crucial role in attack, he defends with confidence, helping the team win back the ball. This combination has made him a great asset to his team and he has a lot more to offer to this ever bettering league.

4. Amrinder Singh – Mumbai City FC
The Indian goalkeeper has saved more than 60 percent of the shots he has faced and is one of the main reasons behind Mumbai’s stellar performance. In addition to his goalkeeping abilities, he has proved to be a reliable teammate with his accurate passing. Right to say that the team is in safe hands.
5. Bartholomew Ogbeche – Kerala Blasters
After a perfect debut season with Northeast United FC last year, Ogbeche is already showing the league that it has got more to do with who he is than where he is. The Blasters are having a subpar season and this man has given them something to root for. Scoring twice in the 4 matches played, the PSG academy player has brought his experience to add to this exuberant side. With such a player in the squad, the team can go for glory this year.
