Sunil Chhetri exchanging jerseys with former Indian striker Baichung Bhutia is already winning the internet. India locks horns with Kenya in the Intercontinental Cup 2018 at the Andheri Complex Stadium in Mumbai. It is a historical moment for the Indian captain, who is playing his 100th international match.
Sunil’s appeal ahead of the match seems to have created an impact as all the tickets for the match was sold out well before time. This is India’s second match of the tournament, India beat the Chinese Taipei in their opening encounter 5-0. Sunil Chhetri scored a hat-trick to help the home side to a convincing win.
As we speak, it is 0-0 at half-time. It is raining and the playing conditions are bad. There is a lot of unpredictability about everything. India got a couple of chances in the first half but could not convert it.
The Indian defence is holding up well, they have not yet made any errors. If India wins this match, they would solidify their position at the top.
This is a big opportunity for India to prepare well ahead of the AFC Asian Cup 2019. The Stephen Constantine-team is playing the best football they have in the past decade. Good times for India football.
