Sunil Chettri has a message for all Indian football fans and we say it is a must watch. But what is even more interesting is the fact that his cricketing counterpart Virat Kohli endorsed the football captain’s message. Sunil Chettri scored a hattrick against Chinese Taipei by 5-0 in India’s first Intercontinental Cup 2018 match. Now, India plays Kenya next which is going to be played in Mumbai. The spotlight would be on the Indian captain Sunil, who would appear in his record 00th International match.
He is by far the most popular name in Indian football after Baichung Bhutia. The Stephen Constantine-team has shown glimpses that they have it in them to go all the way in this tournament. That would be a big morale boost for the Blue Tigers, in the lead up to the mega AFC Asian Cup 2018.
That is the big one and it seems the team is shaping up well under Constantine. Meanwhile, the clash against Kenya would be quite interesting as the Kenyan team are no pushovers, hence India will have to bring their ‘A-Game’ to the fore to make it memorable for the Indian skipper.
Here is the video, in which he requests fans to turn up for the clash against Kenya. He also goes on to the state of football in India today in comparison with big foreign teams.
Soon after Sunil Chettri’s post, here is what Virat Kohli posted…
One thing is clearly evident is the fact that there is mutual admiration among them. The FIFA World Cup 2018 is days away and we can already feel the fever setting-in in India.
