New Delhi, India football captain Sunil Chhetri says that he would rather watch Lionel Messi’s match in the FIFA World Cup beginning from June 14 in Russia, but there is no such favourite team of his for the mega event.
Chhetri while speaking on the sidelines of the Kia Motors programme the official sponsor of the FIFA World Cup said on Monday, “I am quite excited to watch the World Cup, however, there is no such favourite team of mine, but I’ll watch the matches of all the team because the best of the players will be in action during this mega event. While talking of my favourite player I would prefer Messi as the best,” the striker said.
It was Chhetri who struck two goals in the four-nation Intercontinental beating Kenya 2-0 in the finals to lift the title at Mumbai on Sunday thus equalling Argentina’s Lionel Messi’s record of 64 goals in International Football.
Currently Portugal’s star striker Christiano Ronaldo is the only one who is ahead of Lionel Messi and Sunil Chhetri with 81 goals in the international matches.
