How India footballers rate their peers' performance last season will be known on Sunday night, at the first awards programme of the Football Players Association of India (FPAI) here.

Winners will be declared in five categories — best young Indian footballer, best import, best Indian, best coach and a fans' choice vote for which were polled on line at FPAI's website, www.fpaofindia.com.

Nominations were declared on November 14 and except for the fans' choice, votes were cast by only those in the senior and U-23 squads during their preparatory camps in Goa. The camp for the senior side ended on Saturday and that of the U-23 side earlier this month before the SAFF Cup in Bangladesh.

The votes will be counted by neutral arbiters on Sunday and the results announced in the evening.

The programme will have four dance performances by footballers. They have been put through their paces in Goa by Sonia Frazer who was Bhaichung Bhutia's choreographer in the reality television dance show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa which he won.
