Sunil Chhetri refuses to celebrate after goal against former club Mumbai City FC Chhetri refuses to celebrate after goal against former club Mumbai City FC

No doubt why Sunil Chhetri is widely considered the best player to ever come out of an Indian football team. The Delhi striker has time and again proved his worth for every team he has played for, including the national team, where he owns the record for the highest goal scorer in the country’s history.

Chhetri has been the most improtant in front of goal for practically every side and it seems as though Bengaluru FC could depend on the striker to come up with the goods again this season in the ISL. His late goal against Mumbai City FC proved just how important he is but it is after the goal was scored that Chhetri’s true touch of class was witnessed.

The forward refused to celebrate his goal as it was scored against former side Mumbai City FC for whom he has played in the ISL plenty of times. The gesture was well and truly world-class.

It was an easy game for Bengaluru FC, who started their first ever ISL campaign with a 2-0 victory over Mumbai City FC. Led by Indian captain Sunil Chhetri, the home side had 16 shots on target while the visitors managed only 1. But brilliant goalkeeping from Amrinder Singh kept Bengaluru at bay till 66th minute, before 27-year old Spaniard, Edu Garcia found the net.

The goal came from a comical corner which was caused by a fumble from Amrinder who failed to get hold of the ball. Garcia collected the ball from a low corner and swiped it past goalkeeper to give his side the lead. But the real moment of the match came in the dying minutes of the match when Sunil Chhetri found the net in 93rd minute. The captain, who played for Mumbai in earlier seasons, refused to celebrate after scoring. Bengaluru win their debut ISL game by 2-0.

Bengaluru FC’s victory takes them to the top of the ISL on goal difference following Goa’s 3-2 win over Chennaiyin FC earlier today.
