Iconic Sunil Chhetri Officially Returns

INDIA

  • Sunil Chhetri holds India’s all-time caps and goals records
  • He is the fourth-highest international scorer of all-time
  • Set to retire this week after a decisive World Cup qualifier with Kuwait

Sunil Chhetri is an icon of Indian football; a goal-scorer extraordinaire, an incomparable trailblazer and simultaneously the beating heart and the face of the game in his homeland.

He also has a clear idea of one of the first things he is going to do when the curtain comes down on a distinguished, record-setting international career this week.

“Food. Oh man, when I retire, I’m going to smash all of them! I’m quite regimental in the way I eat but I’m just going to let it go for five to ten days. I’m going for everything but especially the Indian dish of Aloo Paratha (a kind of flatbread stuffed with a potato filing).”

A couple of weeks of binge-eating is the least that the legendary forward deserves. When the lights are dimmed at Kolkata’s Salt Lake Stadium on Thursday, Chhetri will gather his things and leave the international arena for the final time.

The boy who grew up dreaming of playing just once for his nation takes his bow as its all-time caps leader and record scorer. He departs as someone renowned equally for his exemplary character, passion and devotion to the Indian cause as his efforts in hauling that advancement on his lithe shoulders
