The retiring Chhetri will be leaving behind a visible gap which will need to be filled by the team which looks ahead to usher in a new football age for India.

When he would think about his choice, Chettri said: “It was not becoming too tired but. .. “When it was in my instinct that this should be the last game, I pondered about it at length and eventually, I reached the conclusion of (not) playing the game. ” Even though he has the prospect of stepping down from the international arena, the passion of Chhetri for the game is unshakable, and he ended the whole sentence in an optimistic note “The kid inside of me would never like to give up if at once again I am given a chance to play for my country”.

India’s last match of the FIFA World Cup qualification journey against Kuwait, which will serve as Chhetri’s swan song on June 6, is a moment when he can leave a lasting imprint before he voluntary surrenders the mantle to the youth. The match is a must-win game for our qualification while we are up to the task of securing a convincing victory with Chhetri who has serious intentions on the match.
