Ngangom Bala Devi is one of the most dynamic forwards Indian women's football has produced. Bala has been in the spotlight from the tender age of 12 and has represented India at various age levels while scoring goals for fun.

The Manipur-born striker made her senior international debut at the age of 15 and is currently one of the most decorated players in the national team at 28.
