    A record that had been unbroken during the previous season (2020/21) has now been shattered. With 48 goals, Ferran Corominas was named the Indian Super League’s all-time leading scorer. With 53 goals this season, Bartholomew Ogbeche has broken his record and is now the leading scorer. Sunil Chhetri, the captain of India and Bengaluru FC, ranks second with 51 goals.

    SC East Bengal Finishes at the Bottom

    People all around the country can’t recall a time when SC East Bengal finished last in the table. However, such a feat has been accomplished by a 102-year-old club. They only managed to win one game during the entire campaign, according to the records. Other bottom-placed teams had previously won two or more games. SC East Bengal’s lone victory came against FC Goa (2-1) on January 19, 2022.

    Record transfer fee for an Indian player

    Liston Colaco, a young and promising Indian forward, joined ATK Mohun Bagan from Hyderabad FC during the summer transfer window. The 22-year-contract old’s had one year left on it at the time.

    The Mariners, on the other hand, brought in Colaco for a record transfer fee to improve their roster for the Indian Super League 2021-22. Hyderabad FC issued the following statement: “With a focus on long-term sustainability, Hyderabad FC agreed for Liston’s move in a deal that fetches the highest-ever transfer fee received for an Indian player.”

    Youngest Winner of the Golden Glove Award

    Prabhsukhan Singh Gill, at the age of 21, became the Golden Glove Award’s youngest recipient. Initially, the Kerala Blasters didn’t think of him as a first-choice goalkeeper. However, Gill joined the show after Albino Gomes suffered an injury against Odisha FC on December 5, 2021. He went on to have seven clean sheets in his next 20 outings.

    The ISL’s Youngest Hat-Trick Scorer

    Kiyan Nassiri became the youngest player to score a hat-trick in the Indian Super League’s history on January 29, 2022, after scoring three great goals against SC East Bengal in the Kolkata Derby. Indeed, Nassiri is the second-youngest player to score a hat-trick in the Kolkata Derby, behind Bhaichung Bhutia.
