A loan move or the Champions League? Why Foden may benefit more from staying at Man City In the 24th minute, Chhetri came close to finding the second goal as he combined with Jeje Lalpekhlua and Anirudh Thapa inside the box.
From a quick throw-in, Chhetri found Jeje on the left and the Chennaiyin man found his teammate Thapa, but before Chhetri could pull the trigger, Michael Kibwage cleared the danger.
