Sunil surpasses Argentine star

Number 2 after Ronaldo

The Indian soccer captain who surpassed Messi


Indian football team captain Sunil Chhetri made history. Argentine football legend Lionel Messi (72) has surpassed the record for most international goals scored. Chhetri scored two goals in his FIFA World Cup qualifier against Bangladesh on Monday night to take his total to 74. The star striker who beat India in this series .. Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo (103) is the second highest goalscorer among current players. Chhetri, 37, was born in Secunderabad. He has been representing the Indian national team since 2005. Has played 117 matches so far.


Doha: The dominance of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the world of modern football is well known. However, Indian football captain Sunil Chhetri has the rare distinction of standing opposite them. Messi surpasses Argentine superstar Messi with 74th goal in international matches. This puts Chetri second only to Ronaldo (103) in the list of footballers currently playing. UAE star Ali Mabkout (73) and Messi (72) are in the next position. India beat Bangladesh 2-0 in the 2022 FIFA World Cup and the 2023 AFC Asia Cup qualifiers. Chhetri scored both goals in Monday night’s match. Six years after the World Cup qualifiers, India won. The next match will be against Afghanistan on the 15th of this month. Chhetri, on the other hand, is another goal away from making it into the all-time top-10 of world football. Sander Kosis (Hungary), Kamoto (Japan), Bashar Abdullah (Kuwait) combined to lead Chhetri with 75 goals.
