India won their last match against Bangladesh with two goals from their captain fantastic. Sunil Chhetri surpassing Lionel Messi in terms of international goals scored was the talk of the town. However, the Indian captain played down the comparisons.
Sunil Chhetri will now be looking to lead his team against Afghanistan and ensure a draw at the least to secure a place in the third round of AFC Asian Cup qualifiers. Afghanistan was beaten 2-1 by Qatar last Friday, and India will be hoping to win this game as well.
Indian captain Sunil Chhetri needs a hat-trick to equal Pele’s record of international goals scored and just needs one goal to enter the top 10 list of most international goals scored. Chhetri is on course to write history, and all the fans are keeping an eye on him for sure.
