Sunil Chhetri’s team India beat Kenya 2-0 in the finals of the Intercontinental Cup 2018 to win the crown. This emphatic result set Twitter on fire. For starters, the match was the most searched hashtag on Twitter. Also, the celebrities could not stop themselves from congratulating Sunil Chhetri and his boys.
It was the Indian captain who stole the show on the night that mattered. Chhetri scored a brace to come to level terms with Lionel Messi in the most international goals scored by active players list. Chhetri needs one more goal to go past Messi and only Cristiano Ronaldo would then be ahead of him.
Here are the pick of tweets by celebrities.
After the match, Sunil Chhetri thanked the fans for coming in huge numbers and supporting the Blue Tigers. He said he expected the same in the future. He also spoke about their aim from now would be the AFC Asian Cup 2019.
