India’s victory against Kuwait in the Jaber al-Ahmad International Stadium has set the stage for their upcoming match against Asian Champion Qatar. The Indian contingent celebrated with the tricolour as Manvir Singh scored the winning goal, bringing overwhelming joy to fans.
In just five days, India will face Qatar at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar. Qatar comes into the game after defeating Afghanistan 8-1 in their opening fixture in the second round of the FIFA World Cup 2026 AFC qualifiers. However, India is without three first-team regulars due to injuries.
Despite this, India’s strategy will test Qatar’s ability to defend against attacks, with players like Chhetri and Chhangte in front of Samad and Singh. For Qatar’s head coach Carlos Queiroz, this match will be an opportunity to prove himself after a rocky start. He will feel pressure to change Qatar’s football narrative and improve their performance on the field.
All eyes will be on this exciting match between two strong football teams, as they compete for supremacy on the field.
