Unperturbed by the Kenyan pressing, India continued playing offensively and as a result Chhetri scored with a superb finish just before the half hour mark to double India's lead.

The world's third leading scorer, Chhetri have so far found the back of the net in each of the three games, including a hat-trick against Chinese Taipei and a brace against Kenya. This unpleasant incident took place at Mumbai Football Arena during Intercontinental Cup that is going on presently.

They will look to replicate the performance of their league game against the African side again in the summit clash, which the organisers have claimed to be a "sold out" match.

Skipper Sunil Chhetri led from the front once again, scoring a brace of spectacular goals to fashion India's 2-0 victory over Kenya in the final of the Intercontinental Cup at Mumbai Football Arena on Sunday.

With the stadium jam-packed with Indian fans, the hosts started on an aggressive note as they penetrated the Kenyan defense twice in the first minute.

GOALKEEPERS: Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, Amrinder Singh, Vishal Kaith.

India were back as a full strength side for the final after the head coach Stephen Constantine effected seven changes in the last league game against New Zealand, which they lost 1-2.

DEFENDERS: Pritam Kotal, Anas Edathodika, Salam Ranjan Singh, Sandesh Jhingan, Lalruatthara, Narayan Das, Jerry Lalrinzuala, Subhasish Bose.
