Sunil Chhetri makes a leader’s promise after the monumental support against Kenya

Sunil Chhetri

Indian football team captain Sunil Chhetri once again displayed his class in his 100th international scoring two goals against Kenya. India won the match comfortably with 3-0 scoreline in front of a packed stadium. Indian football is surely reaching new heights with the captain leading from the front.

In the previous match of the Intercontinental Cup against Chinese Taipei, Chhetri bagged a hat-trick which saw India script a convincing 5-0 victory. After the match, the Indian captain took it to Twitter and had posted a video urging all the Indian fans to turn up at the stadiums for the upcoming matches and support the team.

It looks like Chhetri’s plea has been answered as the tickets of the match between India and Kenya was sold out within a day and thousands of Indian fans turned up at the stadium to back the Blue Tigers. Team India did not disappoint the crowd and gave them the best gift ever by scoring thrice against Kenya.

After the match, Sunil Chhetri did not forget to thank the crowd and the people of India who cheered their team to victory last night. The 33-year-old posted a thank you message on Twitter and vowed to give their lives on the pitch for the country every time they step out on the lush green field.

People took notice of the message quickly and showered praise on the Indian skipper who now has 61 international goals to his name. Chhetri is now just behind Cristiano Ronaldo (81) and Lionel Messi (64) as far as the highest active international goal scorers are concerned. this is indeed a proud moment for the country and we expect the same kind of support for our heroes in the upcoming fixtures as well.

This is how Twitter reacted to Chhetri’s message:
