FIFA honour for skipper Sunil Chhetri

Indian national football team captain Sunil Chhetri is one of the greatest Goalscorer in the country. He is a great player of Indian football and has carried the team on his shoulders for many years. Chhetri is currently India's leading batsman and is still going strong despite turning 38 in August this year.

Chhetri, who made his debut for the Indian national team in 2005, started his professional career with Indian club Mohun Bagan in 2002. He went on to play for some of India's top clubs during his career and currently plies his trade for Bengaluru FC in the Indian Super League (ISL).

"You know all about Ronaldo and Messi. Now get the definitive story of the third highest scoring active men's international. Sunil Chhetri | Captain Fantastic is available on FIFA+ now," FIFA wrote on Twitter, announcing a docuseries on the Indian captain.

Chhetri is the third highest capped player in international football among active players. He is only behind the duo of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. While Ronaldo is the top scorer with 117 goals for Portugal, Messi has 90 goals for Argentina in international football. Chhetri is behind the superstar duo with 84 goals for India. A great servant of Indian football, Chhetri inspired a generation of footballers with his foray into the game and continues to be a role model for the players in it. The 38-year-old batsman has won everything in Indian football, but he still wants more.

He recently led Bengaluru FC to the 2022 Durand Cup title, completing his trophy career in Indian football. Chettri's contract with Bengaluru FC runs until 2023 and the upcoming ISL season could be his last.
