This will be India’s last game in the second round of the World Cup Qualifiers.

India will finish off their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers second round journey with a tricky trip against defending AFC Asian Cup champions Qatar on Tuesday (11 June). After a disappointing outing in Sunil Chhetri’s final game, the Blue Tigers are in desperate need of a win to keep their dream of reaching the third round of qualifiers alive and well.

The Blue Tigers have suffered several hiccups in the second phase of their FIFA World Cup second-round qualifiers. With the recent draw against Kuwait and poor results against Afghanistan, India have failed to keep the equations simple for qualifying for the third round. To do so, they need a victory and hope Afghanistan doesn’t defeat Kuwait in their final match.

Igor Stimac has to ensure that his team’s performance levels are significantly higher against Qatar as compared to how they played against Kuwait. The Blue Tigers have to be defensively even stronger and, more importantly, ruthless in finishing off whatever chances are created to grab a win. A draw or loss would make a bitter end to the qualifying campaign and squash any hopes of making it to the 2026 World Cup.

Qatar were surprisingly held to a draw by Afghanistan recently, but that’s because of how young and inexperienced their squad for these qualifiers are. Having already topped their group, the Maroons have nothing to play for in these matches anymore.

A loss or draw won’t matter that much, but knowing their winning mentality, Qatar will not at all make things easy for India to get a decent result.

Vikram Partap Singh is back in the India squad after missing the last game due to suspension. However, the likes of Subhasish Bose, Amey Ranawade and Lalchungnunga have been excluded from the India squad traveling to Qatar. The Maroons, meanwhile, should have the same squad that travelled for the Afghanistan clash.

The 24-year-old has proven to be a versatile asset for his national team over the last few years and his adaptability makes him a key player in this Qatar squad.

Abdurisag can not only play as a forward, but also in either of the wings and even as an attacking midfielder if necessary. He’s coming off a decent 2023-24 season with Al-Sadd, having scored six goals and provided two assists in 24 games.

After having an underwhelming game against Kuwait, Lallianzuala Chhangte will have even more responsibilities against Qatar. The Mumbai City star, however, needs to be more proactive inside the box to work his magic for India. He needs to cut into central areas and try to get the ball as close to the goal as possible.

Chhangte has to time his runs and his off-the-ball movement smartly enough to evade the young Qatar players and get himself into promising positions.
