Watch: Virat Kohli backs ‘good friend’ Sunil Chetri; appeals to fans to support Indian football team
India cricket captain Virat Kohli backed his football counterpart Sunil Chetri, who appealed to fans to come and watch the national football side play.
Taking to his Instagram account, Kohli appealed to fans who love the sport to come and support the national football side because they deserve all the support they need.
Earlier, Chhetri, one of the greatest footballers that India has produced, on Saturday made an impassioned plea to all the fans of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo — “abuse us, criticise us but please come to watch the Indian national team play.”
With less than two weeks left for World Cup football to begin and broadcasters urging fans of the ‘beautiful game’ to profess their love for their ‘doosri country’ via hashtags, country’s all-time highest goal-getter demanded some love and affection for their ‘first country’.
