Overwhelming feeling

India football captain Sunil Chhetri admitted that he never thought his emotional video on Twitter, seeking support for the National team, would create so much impact and has thanked star cricketer Virat Kohli for his backing.

Chhetri, who is set to play his 100th match in the National jersey on Sunday, said: “it (the video) wasn’t for the special occasion.

“My phone is hung. I never knew it is going to have that kind of impact. I thank everyone who has joined in.

“It is a simple message,” Chhetri said.

“I got some 1000 messages on Whatsapp. I hope everyone takes in right way because it was from my heart, there was no hidden agenda. I thank everyone who joined in, it really helps, Virat (Kohli) and all joined it, it was a sweet gesture,” Chhetri added.

“You want to live the 90 minutes, this is what we want to feel. This is something we couldn’t feel here. Not request to watch Sunil Chhetri, but we are wearing the Blue and it will be great (if people support us),” he said.

Further commenting on the video, he said it was a one-take one and was unplanned.
