The world's third highest active worldwide goalscorer, Chhetri, has so far found the back of the net in each of the three games, including a hat-trick against Chinese Taipei and a brace against Kenya.

Sunil Chhetri was on the mark yet again as the Indian football team soared to greater heights following an impressive 3-0 win over Kenya in the recently concluded Intercontinental Cup. The Blue Tigers have been the superior team so far in the tournament and will aim to seal the flagship tournament when the teams meet tonight at the Mumbai Football Arena.

The hosts have throughout played an aggressive brand of football.

The Indian team head coach has outlined his plans for the preparation regarding the 2019 AFC Asian Cup in UAE.

DEFENDERS: Pritam Kotal, Anas Edathodika, Salam Ranjan Singh, Sandesh Jhingan, Lalruatthara, Narayan Das, Jerry Lalrinzuala, Subhasish Bose.

The star for India in the second half was their custodian Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, who ensured a clean sheet with some of his diving and breath-taking saves.

India also boast of an array of decent midfielders like Udanta Singh, Anirudh Thapa, Pranay Halder and Halicharan Narzary. "Obviously, we'd like to get players on December 10, as that will help them get used to the situation", the India coach added.

Sunil Chhetri who already has 8 goals in 3 matches, scored a brace for India in their win against Kenya, that was also the 31-year-old's momentous 100th game.

While Kenya will seek to take revenge of their humiliating loss in the league stage, the home team will look to end the tournament that witnessed an outpouring of emotions after Chhetri's impassioned plea asking fans to turn up for India games, on a positive note.

Before Kenya could realise what struck them, Chhetri scored once again in the 28 minute to double India's lead.
