Congratulations Captain! You have made us proudIf 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.
