Sunil Chhetri was India’s hero in their win over Bangladesh in the FIFA World Cup Qualifier. He scored both goals as we won 2-0. This comes just days after a narrow loss to Qatar.

These 2 goals took him past Lionel Messi and he now has 74 goals. While he is 10th on the overall list, among current players he is in 2nd place as far as most international goals are concerned. Cristiano Ronaldo holds the top rank.

Sunil Chhetri turns 37 this year and one is not sure how much longer he will play for India. He does have a chance of finishing in the top five if he scores like this in the next few games too.
