He went on to play two internationals for India, and scored in both of them. AIFF President Praful Patel said, “It is devastating to hear that Mr. Prasannan is no more. His contribution to Indian Football can never be forgotten. I share the grief.”

AIFF General Secretary Kushal Das said, “Prasannan was a very talented midfielder who played with repute at the international and domestic level. My condolences to his family. We pray for his soul to rest in peace.”
