India’s Most Successful Striker Sunil Chhetri turned 33

Indian football’s milestone man — Sunil Chhetri, who was born on August 3, 1984, turned 33 two days ago. The Indian captain, who has been one of the most successful yet silent performer for his country over the years was born in Secunderabad.

Chhetri has always played the game with passion and dedication and till date he’s the most successful footballer the nation has seen. One might argue that the honour belongs to Bhaichung Bhutia but if you see the former’s achievements, you have to stop and applaud the little guy.

The forward has scored 54 goals from 94 national appearances. He’s fourth in the list of leading international goal scorers who are still active in football. He’s 28th in the all-time list and one might not believe but he is ahead of former England and Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney, who has 53 goals from 119 appearances for his country.

The whole nation is overwhelmed by the services and passion Chhetri has rendered till date for his nation, and wishes him more success in future for his 33th birthday.
