ISL: Top 5 highest-scoring Indians in the Indian Super League’s history

The Indian Super League has seen outstanding attackers score a record-breaking quantity of goals since its inception in 2014. Sunil Chhetri, the captain of the Indian national team and Bengaluru FC, recently scored 48 goals, making him one of the most prolific goal scorers in ISL history. Chhetri has already scored the most goals for India in the campaign.

He matched the record set by Spaniard Ferran Corominas, who had scored the most goals in the ISL’s history. Chhetri, on the other hand, is currently joint-top scorer in the ISL’s all-time goalscorers list and will most likely surpass “Coro” in the next matches.

Bipin’s most important goal came in the final of the 2020-21 season when he scored against ATK Mohun Bagan. His 90th-minute goal was enough to secure the title for the Islanders.
