Sunil Chhetri is India’s talisman and most important player and there is no doubt that the hopes of the nation rests on his shoulders, considering that they depend on his goalscoring exploits to a large extent.
The 37-year-old who is India’s all-time record goalscorer with 80 goals from 126 appearances has just returned from injury and Igor Stimac will hope that Chhetri can get back up to speed as they depend on him to score the goals up front.
