The architect of modern Indian football

Syed Abdul Rahim, also known as Rahim Saab, is regarded as the architect of modern Indian football. He was the coach and the manager of the Indian national football team from 1950 till his death in 1963. His biggest achievements were India ranking fourth in the 1956 Melbourne Olympics and winning the gold in the 1962 Bangkok Asian Games. His decision of making Jarnail Singh play as the withdrawal centre forward in the final of the 1962 Asiad is considered as a great innovation of his era.
