Last night, our Indian football team won the game by defeating Kenya by 3:0. It was a great win by our Men in Blue, superbly braced by our Indian football captain Sunil Chettri. The third match of the Intercontinental Cup 2018 was held at Mumbai Football Arena, Mumbai. The stadium was jam packed to cheer and to back our men in blue.
However, ahead of the match Sunil Chettri, the captain of Indian Football team made everyone emotional when he took to social media to plead from the Indians. He posted an emotional video that made everyone feel bad for him and for the Indian football team.In his video, he requested the fans to turn out in huge numbers to support his team.
