Qatar steamrolled India to secure their secnd win in the campaign. The visitors scored 3 goals against the Blue Tigers to showcase their dominance in the game.
Qatar started the game on a positive note and Moustafa Tarek gave his side the lead in the 5th minute of the game. The visitors went on to attack India with barrages of attacks but resilient Blues remained ever alert. India got 2 good chances to be in level terms but Apuia and Thapa squandered their shots to make the shots go begging.
Back into the second half, Qatar has been brilliant. Like a fox in the box, Almoez Ali pounced on the ball to score Qatar their second goal in the game. Towards the dying minutes of the game, a sudden move from Qatar saw substitute Yusuf Abdurisag extend the lead for the visitors and win the tie.
India have made some serious changes in their lineup! Primary custodian Gurpreet Singh Sandhu stays on the bench while Amrinder starts. Akash Mishra too is on the bench with the likes of Sahal Abdul Samad. Anirudh Thapa starts along with Udanta Singh while Chhangte starts on the left in place of Naorem Mahesh.
The IND vs QAT FIFA World Cup Qualifier game will take place at Kalinga Stadium on Tuesday at 7 PM. Qatar, rated 61 in the world, is coming off an 8-1 thumping of Afghanistan in their previous encounter. They will be seeking to extend their unbeaten streak in 2019 with a dominant win against 102nd-ranked India.
