Kochi: After a long gap of two years, the excitement of ISL has reached Kochi. There is already a huge crowd of fans outside the stadium. Roadside shops are packed with people looking to get their faces painted and get their hands on a Blasters shirt.

But there is no dispute among the fans about whose shirt they want to own. A large section is also interested in cheering for Blasters wearing the jersey of superstar Sahal Abdul Samad. If you look at the streets of Kochi, you will see people of different ages wearing the Sahal shirt.

“Everyone needs a Sahal shirt. Sahal’s jersey is on sale since the start of trading in the morning. After Sahal’s jersey, people are interested in Luna’s. But Luna’s shirt is short. “That’s why many people return disappointed,” said the young street vendor.

“Most of the fan base is very vocal about Sahal’s game. What a beauty to watch Sahal play. Pulli can even score one goal with ease. We saw that last season. It is hoped that it will be repeated this time too,” said Irshad Faris, a native of Malappuram.

Last season, Sahal was seen filling the pitch for Blasters. Six goals were scored from the boot of the star. Sahal was also the Indian player who scored the most goals in the season for Blasters. The season’s performance also opened the door for the Indian team.

Kerala Blasters will face East Bengal today in the opening match of ISL. The match will be played at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi at 7:30 pm.
