Chhetri equals Messi record as India down Kenya

“What a feeling! Thank you India! This win is for the fans who filled the stands cheered from home and backed and believed in us. The boys and staff pulled together and now it’s time to enjoy. We regroup soon because the road is long- very long. #C

The world's third highest active worldwide 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.

India's football captain Sunil Chhetri Sunday joined Argentine star Lionel Messi as the second highest global goal scorer among active players with his 64th strike for the country.

India will host Kenya at the Mumbai Football Arena in Mumbai.

The hosts have throughout played an aggressive brand of football.

But the Stephen Constantine coached team can not take Kenya lightly as they have defeated New Zealand 2-1 and blanked Chinese Taipei 4-0 last night.

The Indian team head coach has outlined his plans for the preparation regarding the 2019 AFC Asian Cup in UAE.

At the back, India have experienced defenders like Sandesh Jhingan and Pritam Kotal.

The star for India in the second half was their custodian Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, who ensured a clean sheet with some of his diving and breath-taking saves.

MIDFIELDERS: Udanta Singh, Ashique Kuruniyan, Rowllin Borges, Anirudh Thapa, Pronay Halder, Md.

Chhetri at 62 goals in 101 global matches before the Kenya win was two goals away from matching Messi who has scored 64 times for Argentina in 124 appearances. In fact, New Zealand have been part of World Cup finals previously while Kenya boasts of players such as Victor Wanyama within their ranks.

Simple, solid defensive structures are the first step for many global teams, as will soon be seen at the World Cup in Russian Federation, and the All Whites had safety in numbers at the back throughout the tournament (the breakdown before Kenya's victor was a notable exception).

At the Mumbai Football Arena on Thursday, Stephen Constantine's men, unfortunately, bore a greater resemblance to the former when the two sides clashed in their final group fixture which saw the All Whites come from behind to snatch a thoroughly deserved 2-1 win.

After conceding the goal, Kenya regrouped and started to counter-attack.
