Indian football captain Sunil Chhetri was once again under the limelight as his brace in the first half helped India win the Intercontinental Cup against Kenya at the Mumbai Football Arena on Sunday. The Indian football captain has now equalled Argentine great Lionel Messi’s tally as the joint second highest International scorer. He and Messi are equal on goals and are behind Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo.

In a sold-out Mumbai football arena, the electric atmosphere was all that the hosts needed and Chhetri and his men had no trouble in disposing off Kenya. Chettri scored in the 8th and 29th minute as India dominated proceedings throughout the match.
