Last night, Sunil Chettri led our Indian Football team won the third match of the Intercontinental Cup 2018 by beating the Kenyans by 3:0 at Mumbai Football Arena, Mumbai. It was a great win for our men in blue, superbly braced by our Indian football captain Sunil Chettri. The stadium was jam-packed, the fans turned out in huge number at the stadium to cheer and back our Indian football team.
However, the credit of this support from the Indian fans goes to Sunil Chettri who ahead of the big match took to social media to plead from the Indian fans. 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.
This is nothing but a small plea from me to you. Take out a little time and give me a listen. pic.twitter.com/fcOA3qPH8i

As soon as he posted the video on social media, it went viral in no time and was all over the internet. From cricketers to celebrities to fans, everyone shared the video and asked for support.
And finally our icons got what they deserve the most, the love and support from Indians. It was a sell out crowd in Mumbai who lived up to the expectations of the players.
After the match, Suresh Raina took to twitter and appreciated the captain of Football team through a wonderful message. He had special words of praises for the captain.
Here, have a look at what he tweeted:

“Great show, #TeamIndia! Congratulations, @chetri_sunil11 you made it even more special by scoring 2 goals. #INDvKEN @indianfootball”
Well, we really wish that our men in blue gets immense support and love in the upcoming matches as well. #backtheblue.
