Bangalore, Dec 24 (ANI): Practicing hard to conquer the world! These boys, hailing from remote areas of Northeast and other parts of the country, are being groomed by Elvis Joseph, a former athlete. Players in the under-17 team, who recently played in the Melbourne Friendship Cup, are boys from the most remote villages of the North East. They were professionally trained under the 'Boys Sports Coy' of the Indian Army. Magic Feet FC had also participated in 'the Great Wall Cup' of Beijing last year and won the tournament. The boys are thrilled to play for the Club. The Northeast region is an acknowledged sporting powerhouse. More such efforts are needed to provide a platform to budding players from the Northeast and rest of the country.
