Despite starting the World Cup 2022 qualification campaign with a defeat, India’s coach Igor Stimac claims that there is not a reason to be worried ahead of the match against Qatar on Tuesday. The World Cup 2022 hosts will be taking on India in this game at the Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium. Qatar were able to gain a huge amount of positivity after beating of Afghanistan 6-0 in their own qualification match. The stakes are much higher for India in this game, as the national team’s away form has not been great.
“As soon as the Oman match ended, we shifted our focus immediately to the next match. Qatar are the strongest team in the group and playing them will not be easy. However, it’s a great opportunity to learn from,” said Stimac.“The previous match is now history and everyone is now focusing on the match against Qatar. We have to keep our chins up,” said Udanta Singh after the game. The last victory for India was against Thailand in June.
