Cristiano's death

Sir, — Footballers are not a pampered lot and are left to fend for themselves unlike cricketers without insurance, on-field medical help and sponsors. The death of Brazilian striker Cristiano Junior underscores the need for Corporate India and the AIFF to rise to the occasion. The exacting game of soccer, especially in the hot Indian climate, calls for on-field medical assistance.
