10.Climax Lawerence

The Goan born midfielder is one of the finest to play for India. In a wide-ranging career, Climax has played for clubs like Salgoacar, East Bengal and Dempo among others.

Climax Lawrence has been an exemplary servant for the Indian national team for a decade playing in the attacking midfielder position. As a player, he is known as a fierce attacking midfielder, but outside the field, he is considered to be very humble and patient player because he was never seen complaining about Coaches.

He made his international debut in 2002 under Stephen Constantine (during his first stint as Indian coach). The finest moment of his career came in the 2008 AFC Challenge Cup final, where he scored a 91st-minute winner against Afghanistan.

  1. I think there is some typo in the post..

    On one slide it says PK Banerjee – Appearing in 84 matches for his country, he scored 65 goals.
    On another slide on Chhetri – all-time top goalscorer for the Indian national team, notching 51 goals in 91 appearances.

    Is 65 goals correct?
