Gurpreet Singh expected India to beat Qatar in recent World Cup qualifier

Indian goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu has said that he expected the Blue Tigers to beat Qatar during last month’s World Cup qualifier in Doha. The Blue Tigers were underdogs against the Asian champions heading into that game but they gave a good account of themselves with Sandhu coming up with a number of key saves.

As a result, the Blue Tigers managed to secure a hard-fought draw against Qatar away from home but Sandhu believes the country should have come up with a victory instead, he told: “I had expected to win against Qatar. I don’t think it was a dream performance… I did my job. It’s just that it came against a big opponent. To be honest, I have played more difficult games. But it is good to remember the Qatar match. It helped the players gain confidence. Quite a few young boys played after a long time and showed their worth against a big team. Now, you have to move on and try to replicate that.”
