Vastavam web: In one of the most endearing messages for the India U-17 squad, senior team skipper Sunil Chhetri today sought “forgiveness for being jealous” of the likes of Amarjit Singh and Co, who are set to be part of India’s first ever World Cup squad.India’s highest goal scorer in internationals, Chhetri, in an emotionally charged message, told the boys to “take the stage” as the seniors “take the stands”, bringing out the fan in them.But pride is the bigger feeling here. We are not going to give you wisdom about dealing with pressure or taking none of it.
You have trained hard and this is your time. Take the stage, we will take the stands. Come On, India!,” the India captain’s message was posted on Bengaluru FC’s official twitter handle as he wished on behalf of the club.”Over the next one month, we are giving up that privilege as we turn fans of the first ever Indian team to play a football World Cup.” The striker poured his heart out without trying to be preachy, and the message was certainly a bit different from the rest.
