Dr. Talimeren Ao was the captain of the Indian football team that first represented his country in an international tournament. Playing barefooted like many of his team-mates, Ao and India were eliminated in the first round. In national competition, Ao played for Mohun Bagan between 1943 and 1952. In the 1950 Durand Cup final, he switched teams when the goalkeeper of his opponent's team had to leave the field due to injury, and helped the Hyderabad Police squad draw the match. Ao, who had studied medicine in Kolkata, worked for the state health services for many years.
