Football is fast gaining a foothold amongst Indians Twelve-year-old Raagav, who has joined a soccer training academy at Gurgaon on the outskirts of the capital Delhi, is one of thousands, maybe millions of young Indians who want to play the game and even prefer it now to cricket. "I like cricket, but football is better," he says. "I want to be a professional and I want to play for Manchester United." Every street corner in every village and town in India still resounds to the shouts of young boys playing India's favourite game, cricket.
