    Congratulations Captain! You have made us proud

    If any Indian cricketer achieved similar fete, thousands of pages would have been written by now. Every television channel would have arranged prime-time show with the cricketer. But he is an Indian footballer. So people are not discussing. But he has made us proud. He has made the country proud.

    I am talking about Sunil Chhetri, the Captain of Indian football team. Last to last Sunday, Chhetri had equalled Lionel Messi's tally of 64 international goals with a brilliant brace against Kenya helping India to win the Intercontinental Cup at Mumbai. Not only that, Chhetri achieved this fete playing two matches less than Messi.

    Although no one is comparing him with Messi, but the record of this very good player with hidden speed, body swerving technique and powerful shots, must be acknowledged.

    Congratulations, Sunil Chhetri.

    Its a great play from Sunil Chhetri who had equaled Lionel Messi's tally of 64 international goals and thus earned the special place and fame in the annals of Indian Football. Hope this will induce new players to this game and bring the old fame and pride for India.

    It is indeed an achievement that all Indians should be proud of. Congratulations to Sunil Chhetri, the captain of the Indian Football team, for becoming the second highest goal scorer in international Football along with Messi!Hope his efforts will be to cross the score of Ronaldinho at the earliest to become the top scorer and also to take Indian football to greater heights.

    Yes, it's a great achievement of Indian Football. Few years back India was not even considered as an International Football playing Nation, from such a scenario now India had won a prestigious Tournament.

    Sunil might not be considered as great as Messi by many other countries, but still he made us very much proud by scoring 64 international goals. Hope his efforts will motivate other rising Indian players to cross this wonderful achievement, so that Indian Football can reach Greater Hieghts

    The cricket is a fantasy game but other sports are far behind & so instead of many achievements they don't have acknowledgements even. But in a very slow pace, other games are also managing to keep up with the pace which is quite evident with the medals tally in the recent Olympics. I wish to congratulate Sunil Chhetri, along with the complete football team for their achievements so far.

    I do believe that as the infrastructure facility will grow, then for sure we will see more magic in the future.

    It is a real achievement by Sunil Chhetri and we all Indians should appreciate his skill and we all Indians should be proud of him. Congratulations to Sunil Chhetri, the captain of the Indian Football team, He has become the second highest goal scorer in international Football along with Messi. Unfortunately, in our country, many people are mad after cricket and the players in the other games will not get that much encouragement from the public. I think the other young players should learn and get motivated by his achievements and they should also try to achieve greater things so that Indian football team will also get recognised by all.
    always confident
