Igor Stimac has faced Qatar on three occasions.

After being held 0-0 by Kuwait on Thursday in Sunil Chhetri’s farewell match, India remains in the second spot in Group A of the second round of FIFA World Cup Qualifiers with five points and a goal difference of -3.

India will take on the two-time Asian champion Qatar in their last Group A match at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan. With Qatar already having booked their spot in the third round, all the other three teams remain in contention for the second and final berth.

Igor Stimac faced the Asian champions three times as a manager of the Blue Tigers but unfortunately, he failed to get a win for his team now in the upcoming match he will have to push the Blue Tigers as much as he can because if he doesn’t get the win the Indian team will fail to qualify for the third round and as per his statement he will have to leave the National team job.

The Croatian tactician has already announced the squad that will travel to Qatar and face the Maroons who have called young players for this fixture and rested their main players.

This match will be one of the biggest matches in Indian football history and can be the biggest match of Igor Igor Stimac’s coaching career. This match will surely decide whether the Croatian stays here or goes back to his home.
