The tournament follows a round robin format, wherein each team will play the other three teams at least once. After the completion of this round, the top two teams will play in a final. As things stand, India is currently on top of the pile followed by Kenya, New Zealand, and lastly Chinese Taipei. While Kenya beat New Zealand by a scoreline of 2-1, India thrashed Chinese Taipei 5-0. Skipper Sunil Chhetri was instrumental for the Blue Tigers and scored a hattrick to secure the win.
The match against Kenya will also act as a personal milestone for Chhetri, who will head out to the pitch wearing blue for the hundredth time. A huge turnout is expected to see the skipper reach this momentous milestone. Chhetri has scored 59 goals in 99 appearances for India, making him the third highest active goalscorer for a national team.
Earlier this week, the Indian skipper also posted a heartbreaking plea on social media, encouraging Indian fans to come and watch India play as the turnout in the stadium was extremely poor on their first match against Chinese Taipei. Various sports personalities later joined in to spread Chhetri's message and encourage fans to go see India play.
