Following a memorable triumph on the road against Kuwait, the football team of India is set to face the formidable Qatar in a packed Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar on Tuesday.

Qatar, having secured an 8-1 victory over Afghanistan in their previous match, poses a formidable challenge. The Blue Tigers are determined to secure a position in the 2027 AFC Asian Cup by finishing among the top two teams in their group. Although they have never progressed to the third round of FIFA World Cup qualifiers, the recent 1-0 triumph over Kuwait has significantly boosted their chances.

India’s path through the World Cup qualifiers has been filled with challenges. They played their first qualifiers in 1985 for the 1986 FIFA World Cup. Out of the 48 qualifying matches, India secured victory in 10. They showcased a particularly noteworthy performance during the 2002 edition by accumulating 11 points across six games.
