Sunil Chhetri in red-hot form:
The Indian captain Sunil Chhetri has been in the form of his life. He already has 8 goals from just 3 matches. He also has scored a hat-trick in the tournament. India’s goal machine will look to add to his tally. He also went past David Villa to become the third highest international goal-scorer in the history of the game. He is now just behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Oh yes, the crowds at the Andheri Sports Complex has played a huge role in India’s progress in the tournament. From giving them the Vikings clap to fans entering the field to touch Sunil Chhetri’s feet, Indian football has never seen such madness for football in India. Sunil Chhetri’s men have truly revolutionized the sport in India. The tickets for the finals sold out three days ahead of the finals, just when India beat Kenya to safely secure the finals berth, this is just a testament to highlight the growing popularity of Indian football.
