The wishes keep pouring in for Team India. Besides the usual list of fans and celebrities, we have a new face who’s supporting Virat Kohli and his boys. A day before the big clash between India and South Africa, German footballer Thomas Mueller has come out in support of Team India for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The Bayern Munich player shared a post on Twitter, wishing all the participants in the World Cup the best. He finally revealed that he had his fingers crossed from Virat Kohli, who supported the German football team on multiple occasions.
Mueller went out of his way to support the Men in Blue, wearing a blue jersey with the words ‘India’ embossed on it. Mueller isn’t the first footballer to support India. Earlier, Brazil and Chelsea defender David Luiz showed his support for India in the World Cup with a video on Twitter. Virat on his part supports a multitude of football teams including Tottenham Hotspurs, Chelsea and even Southampton FC! Make up your mind, Virat!
All the best Virat, we're rooting for India as well...
