New Delhi, Sep 24 (PTI) In a big blow to India's U-17 World Cup player Anwar Ali's fledging career, the medical committee chief of Asian Football Confederation has advised the national federation against allowing him to continue playing the game considering his congenital heart condition.

The 20-year-old Ali, now with the I-League second division side Mohammedan Sporting Club of Kolkata, has been told by the All India Football Federation (AIFF) to stop training after he was diagnosed with the heart condition last year.
