ISL 2017: Top 5 Indian goalscorers the tournament's in history
The fourth season of ISL is underway with 10 teams fighting for the title this time around. Canadian forward Iain Hume leads the goal scoring and appearances charts with 23 goals in 47 appearances. Although the goal scoring record table is largely lead by overseas players, there are some Indians as well in it who are proving their mettle on the big stage. Let's have a look at the top 5 Indian goalscorers at the Indian Super League.
#1 Jeje Lalpekhlua
The top scoring Indian in the ISL and the third overall is a forward from Mizoram, who is leading the line along with Chhetri for the Indian national team as well. Jeje Lalpekhlua has represented Chennaiyin FC for three seasons and scored 13 goals for them. His top scoring season included 6 goals in 11 games which led to Chennaiyin winning the title in 2015.
However, his 3 goals in the next season proved of little importance as Chennaiyin FC languished at the bottom of the table. With, Gregory Nelson and Mohammad Rafi leading the line from the front with him Chennaiyin FC are a team to watch out for. Meanwhile, Jeje also managed to score 20 goals in 46 games for the Indian national team. He is rightly seen as the future of Indian football after Sunil Chhetri.
