Low-key appearance for Chhetri against United


New Delhi: Indian striker Sunil Chhetri made a low-key 21-minute appearance in the second-half in Kansas City Wizard’s surprise 2-1 win over English Premier League giants Manchester United in an international friendly in Kansas City, United States.

Chhetri, who is yet to make his Major League Soccer debut, came in for Teal Bunbury in the 69th minute and had a couple of shots, which, however, did not trouble Manchester United goalkeeper Benjamin Amos at the newly-remodeled Arrowhead Stadium.

He was lively throughout his outing as he kept running and tried to pile pressure on the Manchester United defense in an open and free-flowing game that was played at a breakneck pace in front of more than 50,000 spectators.
