Kuala Lumpur: After Asia’s football fans spent much of the past two weekends debating the merits of the continent’s finest Bundesliga and Premier League players, our focus this week turns to the players who made an impact in the Italian game.
To help us examine the contenders in our Asia’s Greatest Serie A Players poll, we’ve enlisted Cesare Polenghi, an Italian born and raised, Japan-based football columnist and pundit, and the former Managing Editor of Goal Asia.
New Delhi: June 4, 2018 will remain etched in the memory of Indian football fans forever. It was on this day that talismanic Sunil Chhetri played his 100th International match – only the second Indian footballer to do so. And he made it even more memorable with a double strike in a 3-0 victory over mighty Kenya.
While a full house clad in Blue braved the incessant rain to reach the Mumbai Football Arena hours before the kick-off, the rest of India remained glued to their television sets to witness history — #Chhetri100.
