I don't want to give too much importance on top-5000, 6000 or top-10000 rankings. Sunil Chhetri has got the talent. He was born in India and not in Argentina. He is also not like a big tall European Footballer. We cant change DNA, Genes and chromosomes. But one thing for sure he has got the skill and a very good presence of mind. That's why he maintains a very good strike rate. Some of his goals are truly world class.

Quite correct. That last part is what comes to my mind also, often. He has scored some brilliant goals. He is a damn good scorer, and has all kinds of scoring skills and instincts. He is really quite speedy too. Just a great football player.

This is in the wrong thread. I need to move the posts.

Well, the ISL finalists are decided now, as the second leg of the home and away semifinals just got done. How about this? Chhetri versus Jeje!!!

At Bengaluru, the Bengaluru FC beat FC Pune City, 3-1 with a hat-trick by Sunil Chhetri
At Chennai, Chennaiyin FC beat FC Goa, 3-0, with 2 goals by Jeje.

Isn't that great, to see our best two strikers coming through to put their teams in the final?

Well, Jeje had the final laugh, as Chennai beat Bengaluru in the ISL final, 3-2. Sunil scored one more and Jeje had no scores.

Sunil scored the opening goal from a beautiful diving header a treat to watch.

Pretty telling, isn't it, that nobody has posted here for the past 8 months. Most of the teams have already played 10 matches in the new 2018/19 season of the ISL, and there's absolutely no interest here!
Just watched a bit of the Mumbai vs Delhi match on TV (in Singapore!). Reasonable quality, and quite exciting 4-2 win for Mumbai. Machado (who was in the Portugal national team until 2 years ago) scored one goal, and Bustos (a Brazilian who never made his national side) scored another (albeit a penalty).

The problem is that we have foreign retirees or near-retirees as the stars, and the stands are largely empty (slightly worse than the typical cricket test match these days).
Sad to see the ISL petering out so quickly...
