Chhetri Named to Indian Roster

India has named their roster for this January's Asian Cup in Qatar. SKC Wizards forward, Sunil Chhetri made the 23 man roster for the tournament. Chhetri had scored a few goals after joining the national team for their extended camp after the Wizards play Manchester United this summer. He'd suffered from injuries the past month or so that have kept him out of India's last few friendlies along with many other members of India's team. Still, Chhetri was one of 4 forwards named to the team's roster for the tournament.

Chhetri and India kick off the tournament on January 10th when they take on Australia they then take on Bahrain on the 14th and finish against South Korea on the 18th. Korea has named their roster while Australia has a preliminary roster out and neither one are going to be easy for India to defeat.
