Sunil Chhetri scored a brace.

India is a cricket dominated country where most of the attention goes towards the cricket team while other sports are often neglected. But like cricket, Indian football is has been making us proud for long. And it is time to do justice to these footballers who give their all on the pitch for the country each and every time.

A few days ago Indian skipper Sunil Chhetri sent out a plea on popular social media website Twitter urging all the football fanatics in India to visit the stadiums during the matches and show their full support to the team. Chhetri’s video worked wonders and tickets were sold out within a day.

Sunil Chhetri who has been unstoppable in the tournament paid back the supporters in style. he himself scored the two goals in the final against Kenya. both the goals came in the first half and now the talismanic Indian captain is level with Lionel Messi as far as the highest active international goalscorers’ list is concerned.

Here is how the world reacted:
