Imagine a line-up including the best of Indian football players at the moment in all departments -- Sandesh Jhingan in defense, Eugeneson Lyngdoh in midfield and Sunil Chhetri and CK Vineeth in the attacking line.

Bengaluru FC's recent signing also marks the re-association of the terrific Kerala Blasters duo in Vineeth and Jhingan. While Jhingan has been one of the key players for the Sachin Tendulkar co-owned Kerala Blasters for all the three Indian Super League (ISL) seasons, Vineeth was instrumental in ISL 2016 as his performances inspired the Kerala football side to make the final of the competition.
