New Delhi: Sunil Chhetri recently surpassed Wayne Rooney to become the fourth-highest active goalscorer in international football when he netted his 54th goal for India earlier this month in a 1-0 win over the Kyrgyz Republic in a third-round game in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup qualifiers.

Gujarat Lions co-owner Keshav Bansal took to Twitter on Monday, to congratulate Chhetri on his achievement. 

Even though Bansal was already too late to wish, he ended up tweeting about the footballer being the fourth highest scorer in 'runs'. 

He was mercilessly trolled and consequently he deleted that tweet. His tweet read: "Let’s take a moment to talk about @chetrisunil11, the Indian footballer who has been ranked 4th in the world for scoring the highest runs."

Here are some of the reactions:
