In his 100th International match, Sunil Chhetri scored a brace to lead India to a 3-0 win over Kenya in India’s second match of the Hero Intercontinental Cup at the Andheri Sports Complex in Mumbai. Skipper Chhetri’s penalty strike and a peach of a goal in added extra time alongwith Jeje Lalpekhlua’s strike enabled India to outmaneuver Kenya 3-0 in a tough contest.

Chhetri made history by becoming the second Indian ever to bag 100 International caps. Chhetri’s shot from distance after Jeje had caused panic in the opposition defence, went inches over the bar. Already assured of a place in the final, India will next play higher-ranked New Zealand in their last round-robin fixture on Thursday.

Twitter exploded after India’s ‘spectacular’ victory and here are the best reactions:

India will play New Zealand on June 7.
