We look at five of India’s most stylish footballers who are our very own Beckhams and Ronaldos(Instagram)

Football fever spiked in India even before the FIFA World Cup began last week. The Indian national team lifted the 2018 Intercontinental Cup by defeating Kenya 2-0 in Mumbai, and the boys in blue had all eyes on them not just for their skill, but also their style and fashion choices. We look at five of India’s most stylish footballers who are our very own Beckhams and Ronaldos.

The captain of Indian football is quite rakish. His low fade haircut with front bangs is one of the hottest hairstyles of the season. The 33-year-old has 602k followers on Instagram, and has done shoots for one of the leading men’s fashion magazines in the country. The man wore a Varun Bahl sherwani for his wedding last year, aces casual cool style in tees and denims, and looks sharp in formals. The right mix, we say!

Robin Singh

Another debonair on the block who sets hearts fluttering! The 27-year-old footballer’s hairstyle and beard is always on point, and he doesn’t shy away from experimenting with fashion. From his electric red suit to his romper, his style has made it to fashion glossies. Robin’s Insta following? Well, 29.5k, and growing!

Gurpreet Singh Sandhu

As a goalkeeper, he’s mostly at the end of the field, but far ahead when it comes to being fashion-savvy. His towering 6-feet-4-inches frame complements the varied suits he wears — checkered to colour-blocked! If you’re one of his 61.2 k followers on Insta, you know what we’re talking about.

With his charming looks, a lean and ripped physique, a fun mix-and-match style and 22.9k followers on Instagram, he’s playing right even off the field. Kumam’s collection of sneakers deserves a special mention.

Amrinder Singh

Another goalie who’s an expert at saving the opponents’ targets but scores style goals like a pro. Be it his laidback yet chic airport looks or the spiffy suits he wears for interviews, Amrinder has been setting #stylegoals for many. His 35.7k followers on Instagram get enough style fodder from him to keep going.
