Losing nine times in 11 occasions India has met Oman on the ground, the Blues is coming back with a fresh and young team. Head coach of India, Igor Stimac sees the postponement of the FIFA World Cup and AFC Asian Cup qualifiers against Qatar and Bangladesh as a bit of a relief. The Indian team has suffered three underwhelming results that had virtually ended their chances of reaching World Cup qualifiers’ second round and made their way to reach the 2023 AFC Asian Cup a lot harder.
We hope to see a good game from the boys now. Good luck to the Indian men’s football team!
