Sunil Chhetri makes debut for Wizards in loss to Rapids - Soccer - SI.com
I know we have at least some following in India and who I'm sure will be interested to know (if they don't already) that one of their own, Sunil Chhetri, has made his professional debut in Major League Soccer on Tuesday.
I had a chance to watch some domestic league matches in India when I was there last summer and it is definitely a few steps down from MLS but with the growing popularity of the world game, India's huge population, and the widespread proliferation soccer/football as a participation sport among kids in India you have to think that this will be the first of many. I'd guess that India will mirror the progress of US players as they emerged on the world scene in the 80s.
This will be an interesting story to follow over the coming years.
