India's World Cup dream all but over after Oman loss

Game Details

India produced yet another indifferent display, losing 1-0 to Oman to all but get eliminated from chances of further progress in 2022 World Cup qualification.

Oman's Muhsen Al Ghassani scored a first half goal, after having missed a penalty earlier in the match, to take three points and Oman into second position on 12 points in India's group, just behind Qatar, who have 13. India, with three points from five matches, are now mathematically out of running for topping Group E, and can only finish...

Doungel rescues a point as India remain winless

Game Details

India's Jekyll-and-Hyde performance in the 2022 World Cup and 2023 Asian Cup qualifiers continued, as they missed chances galore in a 1-1 draw away against Afghanistan in Dushanbe on Thursday.

India's performance was patchy, with a bright start giving way to a late goal conceded in injury time of first half against Zelfegar Nazary of Afghanistan. Substitute Seminlen Doungel saved India their blushes with a headed goal off a Brandon Fernandes corner in the third minute of time added in the second...

Ratings: Shaky Sandhu 3/10 as India drop points at home again

Adil Khan's late equaliser helped India avoid a shock defeat against lower-ranked Bangladesh in their third group game of the FIFA World Cup and AFC Asian Cup qualifiers at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata on Tuesday. Despite an improved second-half performance, the hosts will rue their poor start, and particularly some sloppy defending that cost them two points in a game they were favourites to win.

Ratings: Gurpreet 10/10 as Stimac masterminds a point

An inspired display from goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu helped India earn a famous draw against reigning Asian Cup champions Qatar in their second group game of the World Cup qualifiers in Doha on Tuesday. India, who were without an unwell Sunil Chhetri, went in as massive underdogs against the hosts. While Qatar's profligacy in front of goal was a big factor, India's grit and teamwork while defending was just as impressive. After a disappointing loss against Oman in the opening game, the draw...

India ratings: Adil Khan 3/10 as sloppy India pay for passive second half

Much like most of their recent performances, it was a tale of two halves as India followed a brilliant, attacking first-half display with a passive approach in the second, meaning Oman came back from a goal down to win 2-1 in Guwahati in the opening game of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers. Sunil Chhetri gave India the lead from a brilliantly worked set piece early on as India dominated early proceedings. But Oman came back strongly in the second period, with Al Mandhar scoring two late goals...
