Not only his speed, but the smart footballer also reads the situation quickly and accurately to create consistent opportunity moments for his team.
Das can provide useful and dangerous crosses for his teammates.

On the other hand, Ashique Kuruniyan is now growing up as a talented left wing-back, who has already represented the Indian national football team in 21 games. The fearless footballer is useful both in the defensive approach and attacking prospects. While he earlier impressed the experts with his pace, Kuruniyan is now also improving his passing skills to become a more powerful teammate.
