Sunil Chhetri equals Pele with 77th goal.

Sunil Chhetri equaled the legendary Pele with his 77th international goal and his 83rd minute’s strike helped India beat Nepal 1-0 and saved his side from the verge of elimination in the SAFF Championships here on Sunday.

The 37-years-old Chhetri, playing in his 123rd match for India, struck a late goal to himself on even keel with the Brazillian great (77 goals from 92 matches).

In the list of highest active scorers, he is behind Cristiano Ronaldo (112) and Lionel Messi (79).

India will still need to win their final round-robin league match on Wednesday against hosts Maldives if they have to make it to the October 16 final.
