India has a huge match tonight when they take on Kyrgyzatan in the AFC Cup Qualifier. In the build up to the big game, captain and talismanic striker, Sunil Chhetri has a message for all Indian football fans.
Chhetri, who has scored 53 goals in 93 international appearances for India, has spoken about the positive vibe that is currently present among the team members.
“It’s been a while since we felt so positive approaching a game. Winning a game is always good for you. You’ll always feel positive when you’re winning. Puerto Rico, Nepal – trust me, not a single game was easy for us. By God’s grace, going out and winning is tough but it instils positivity within you,” he said in the pre match press conference.
“We can’t afford to be complacent at this moment. One moment of the slip-up and everything will be ruined. We are churning out results- we’re proud to take the results and get the clean sheets.”
“There was a tough time for us but we believed in ourselves. Now the table has turned and we’re getting results. Last day, I was happy to sit in the stands to see the boys garnering a good win against Nepal. Getting out and winning every day is tough but thankfully, we’re being able to do so,” he said.
“We have a huge task to cut out tomorrow. We know, they’re a strong side but we’re here to give everything we have to win the tie.”
