Gafur’s ‘hand of god’

Kozhikode: If a player meddles the ball using his hands is treated as foul in football, but here in a small village named Mannilkadavu near Kozhikode this rule of football have been re-written for a youngster Gafur. Gafur is a paraplegic lad but his intense passion for football made him to play the game with his hands. His friends and the football tournament organizers have tweaked the basic rules of football simply for Gafur. If it was the Maradonian ‘hand of god’ that saved his team in the World Cup ages ago it is now Gafur’s brilliant hand-saves that steer his team to victory often.
