A captain is someone who stands for his team against all odds and Sunil Chhetri is definitely one of the most marvellous captains this world has seen. The man has, time and again come forward to support his team. Here are 3 instances that prove that he is a true blue legend:-
1). When he went ahead and plead the countrymen to come and watch the team’s game, the man’s gesture won everyone and a huge tsunami of spectators came to the stadium to support the Indian marvels. Interestingly, the tickets for the match against Kenya were sold out within few hours of him putting up the video.

Take out a little time and give me a listen. <a href="https://t.co/fcOA3qPH8i">pic.twitter.com/fcOA3qPH8i</a></p>&mdash; Sunil Chhetri (@chetrisunil11) <a href="https://twitter.com/chetrisunil11/status/1002892448513679361?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 2, 2018</a></blockquote><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
2). When the Indian team faced defeat against Bahrain in the AFC Asia Cup and he, as a brilliant captain took all the responsibility. He said: “Mentally, we killed it ourselves. Physically, we were not tired. Someone like Hali (Halicharan Narzary) could have run 180 minute more. We just didn’t perform. As a senior player, I should have done something, maybe yelled at the boys to not just lump the ball because at this level you simply can’t do that.”
3). When he scored the stunning match-winning score against Kyrgyzstan in 2017 and gave a wonderful statement in the post-match interview: “It wouldn't have happened if there was no Jeje Lalpekhlua playing the brilliant final ball to me... it wouldn't have happened if Eugeneson Lyngdoh was not playing all the lovely passes and it also wouldn't have happened if Gurpreet Singh Sandhu was not making the lovely saves in the goal. it's about the entire team. I am nothing if the team doesn't perform as a whole. From the players to the head coach to the ball boy and even the media, I am indebted to one and all.”
