India and Afghanistan will lock horns in the Qualifiers of the FIFA World Cup 2022 and AFC Asian Cup 2023 on 15th June at the Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium, Doha. The match is scheduled to take place at 7:30 pm IST and 5:00 pm Doha Time.

India’s 2-0 victory over Bangladesh was encouraging, as it was their first victory in 11 matches and the first in the current World Cup Qualifier. However, if they do not maintain their rhythm, the good turnaround might be short-lived, especially because they will be facing Afghanistan in their next encounter, a squad that is far more structured than Bangladesh.

When Igor Stimac‘s team takes the field, they would be eyeing for re-creating the result from their last match. Despite the fact that a draw would be enough for the Indians to finish third in Group E of the qualifications and see themselves in the third round of the Asian Cup, the players cannot go into the game with the same attitude.

Meanwhile, Afghanistan showed amazing tenacity in limiting the scores at 1-2 on way to a tight loss against Oman. However, with a win urgently required, Afghanistan’s team cannot afford to be complacent in the upcoming encounter.

Afghanistan, who are in the fourth position in Group E, have only one win which also came against Bangladesh. The Afghans have the ability to secure a draw, but they will need to fight beyond their strength if they are to win against India.
