Kolkata: With the government yet to give the go ahead to the football contingent for the Incheon Asian Games, both the men and women's teams are stranded in China where they had gone for an exposure tour ahead of the big event.
"The teams are now stranded in Shanghai, waiting for the government's green signal. The team was slated to leave for Incheon Tuesday," an All India Football Federation (AIFF) source told IANS.
"It is a very painful experience for the young teams, stranded in a foreign land. And it is not a good advertisement for the country's football also," the source said.
