Did India Qualify For FIFA World Cup 2022?

Did India qualify for the FIFA world cup 2022? You have probably been asking yourself this question. You might have a strong belief that India is one of the best teams in the world but are you sure? Let’s see how the group stage will affect India’s chances of qualifying. First, let’s look at the standings in Group E. In other words, how many matches did India play and how many goals were scored?

India’s Chances of Qualifying for FIFA WorldCup 2022

There is a lot of speculation on whether India’s chances of qualifying for the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar are good enough to make the Asian Games. India is considered one of the favorites before the World Cup qualifiers began, but they suffered a number of setbacks. First, they lose 2-1 to Oman in Guwahati, followed by a goalless draw with Qatar. However, they did score a goal in a match against the Asian champions, and a goalless draw with the latter. India’s chances are high as long as they do not lose to New Zealand in a match in which they lose to them.

Group E Standings

The group stage of the FIFA  2022 qualifiers is underway. India is looking to improve its ranking in the competition. The team lost to Qatar in a joint 2022 World Cup qualifier but won the Asian Cup final against Japan in June. India currently sits fourth in Group E, with three points from five matches. If they win their remaining matches and secure third place, they will qualify for the next stage.

Matches Played

In November 2015, India played its last FIFA World Cup qualifier, beating Guam 1-0 in Bangalore. On Thursday, however, the Indians suffered a heavy defeat to Asian champions Qatar, losing with 10 men for much of the match. The team had already lost to the UAE 0-6 in March. Did India qualify for FIFA World Cup 2022?? Let us look at the qualification process to find out.

Goals Scored

Sunil Chhetri will be the primary goal scorer for India in its next FIFA World Cup qualifier against Afghanistan. The Indian forward is prolific at the international level and is their most reliable scorer. India has yet to find a suitable replacement for Chhetri, who is a proven goal-scorer in international matches. Chhetri has already scored three goals against Afghanistan in the SAFF Cup.
