A day after Jeakson Singh scored the epic goal – first by an Indian, Chhetri, who is getting ready for the AFC CUP qualifier against Macau could not stop raving about it.
I was jumping, man! We all were jumping! We had as many as three to four chances, and one of the shots (Rahul K) hit the bar. I was so happy for that goal (scored by Jeakson).Sunil Chhetri
