Over the course of last one-two weeks, the history of Indian football seems to be changing in India’s perception and we couldn’t be more happy about it. For the longest time, Indians have united for Indian cricket and even for International football matches, but very rarely do they come to the stadiums to cheer for Indian football team, as well as for other sports.

But it completely changed once Sunil Chhetri came out with a video, urging fans to come and support them in the stadiums for their intercontinental match series. He posted an emotional message that hit home with many and soon the seats for these
matches were all filled up.

The scenario was same for the first, as well as, for the last match of the series. And, last night when India lifted the Intercontinental Trophy, the entire stadium came together for a celebration that will give you goosebumps. The Indian team celebrated their win with the fans with a small cheering session and it looked something like this.

Apart from this celebration video, there was one more exciting thing about last night’s match and it was Sunil Chhetri.

Here’s how he thanked the fans who came to support the team.

After last night’s match, Chhetri came at par with Lionel Messi and lead the home side to Intercontinental Cup title triumph with a 2-0 win over Kenya in the summit clash. It was Chhetri’s 102 international match and he struck in the eighth and 29th minutes to hand a dominant India the trophy. Much like everything else, even this struck the Internet where people couldn’t stop praising the man for his commitment and hard work. Here are some of the reactions to Sunil Chhetri’s milestone.

All in all, the Intercontinental Cup became one of the most memorable series India has ever played and it was all possible because of the fans who went out to cheer their home team. Keep supporting.
