Qatar is set to take on India in a FIFA World Cup 2026 Qualifier match at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneshwar on Tuesday, November 21, at 7:00 pm IST. The Indian team, known as “The Blue Tigers,” has been performing well and recently won against Kuwait with a goal from Mohun Bagan’s forward Manvir Singh in the first match of the group stage.
Qatar, on the other hand, is one of the strongest teams in Asia and has dominated their matches so far. In their last game against Afghanistan, they won 8-1 and gained three points. While Qatar is considered the clear favorite going into the match, an invigorated Indian team supported by their home crowd has a chance to pull off a win against them. Winning against Qatar will significantly increase India’s chances of qualifying for the tournament.
In recent years, Team India has enjoyed mixed results and has remained unbeaten at home. However, they have not yet played any matches since February 2023 due to various reasons such as COVID-19 restrictions and cancellations. Despite this break, they are eager to get back into action and prove themselves on the field.
The FIFA World Cup Qualifiers match between India and Qatar will be telecasted live on Sports18 1, Sports18 1HD, and Sports18 3 channels. It will also be available for streaming on Jio Cinema app and website for viewers who want to watch it online.
