ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsOn June 2, Indian football team's captain Sunil Chhetri shared a video of his emotional appeal on Twitter, urging people to come and watch them play. He made this appeal after his team played and won against Chinese Taipei by 5-0 in a game which was attended by barely 2000 people. Result? Tickets for all the upcoming football matches in the International Cup were sold out. Since then, not only has his tweet gone viral, but the Indian football team too has found their push that has catapulted them towards success. And Sunil Chhetri has now become the newest star of the Indian sports scene. © Twitter Chettri did not start playing football recently, yet it is funny how it took one video for fans to take notice his talent, so much so that now people can't stop talking about him. But like they say, “It's better to be late than never.”And we're glad that finally the cricket-crazy nation is appreciating the potential of the Indian football team, which has since not disappointed us one bit. After putting up a commendable game and defeating Kenya by 2-0, India proudly lifted the International Cup in Mumbai on Sunday. Captain Sunil Chhetri scored twice, first in the 8th minute and second in the 29th minute. With this Chhetri's tally has now reached to 64 from 102 matches, which made him the second highest international goal-scorer among all the active players. © BCCL Until now it was Argentina's Lionel Messi enjoying the second spot (64 in 124 internationals), but now he will be sharing his position with 33-year-old Chhetri. Cristiano Ronaldo still leads the tally with 81 goals from 150 matches. We guess the world that was until now divided between Ronaldo and Messi fans, will now be divided into three parts, given how Chhetri is gearing up to give them tough competition. Chhetri thanked the crowd for turning up in great numbers to support the team and took that opportunity to urge fans to compare him with Messi. © BCCL He reportedly said, “I am not taking that too seriously. There is no comparison (with Messi). I am a big fan (of him) and happy scoring goals for the country.” Chhetri is truly a star who needs all the love and support in the world.
