Chhetri equals Messi record as India down Kenya

Sunil Chhetri's India seek crowning glory Kenya stand in way at Intercontinental Cup

The 33-year-old Chhetri's double strike capped a brilliant tournament which saw him score eight out of India's 11 goals and put him on par with Argentine superstar Messi with 64 strikes for the country to be the joint second highest global goal scorer among active players.

Chhetri's heartfelt appeal last week was backed by India's cricket heroes Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar after just 2,569 people turned up for India's opening game on June 1. The world's third highest active global goalscorer, Chhetri, has so far found the back of the net in each of the three games, including a hat-trick against Chinese Taipei and a brace against Kenya. It all started at the Mumbai Football Arena when Chhetri delivered a stunning performance against Chinese Taipei in the tournament opener.

The hosts are the side to beat this tournament as they have throughout played an aggressive brand of football. But the Stephen Constantine coached team are aware to not take Kenya lightly as they have defeated New Zealand 2-1 and drubbed Chinese Taipei 4-0 to secure qualification.

India also boast of an array of decent midfielders like Udanta Singh, Anirudh Thapa, Pranay Halder and Halicharan Narzary.

GOALKEEPERS: Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, Amrinder Singh, Vishal Kaith.
