Chhetri further bettered Pele's tally as he scored another one to have 79 international goals under his belt. The Indian captain is now the third-highest active international goalscorer.
Pele, 80, had been receiving treatment at Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo since August 31, after a suspected tumor was detected during routine tests.
On Wednesday, Nascimento had posted a video of the former Number 10 singing the anthem of Santos, his former club.
The tumour was found when Pelé went for routine exams at the end of August. His surgery took place on September 4.
The 80-year-old Edson Arantes do Nascimento was in good clinical condition and will remain 'from now on recovering in his room' at Albert Einstein Hospital.
Pele stated that his recovery is going well after the 80-year-old underwent successful surgery to remove a tumour on the right side of his colon.
Hospital Albert Einstein in Sao Paulo said in a statement that 80-year-old Edson Arantes do Nascimento was recovering "in a satisfactory manner," though still in intensive care.
Pelé, the only male player to win three World Cups, has had mobility problems since a failed hip replacement surgery in 2012.
Football legend Pele has moved to reassure fans that he is feeling fine after being taken to hospital in Brazil.
