The Indian Football Team will be back in action later tonight as they take on Qatar for the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers. Things are looking pretty gloomy for the time being for India, as they reside at the 4th spot in Group E with three points to their names. They are yet to win a game in their group, as they drew three fixtures to Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Qatar respectively. The Blue Tigers did suffer back to back defeats to Oman as well. Although making it to the World Cup seems highly improbable, the Indian players will be keen on creating an upset against hosts Qatar later tonight.
The team news is that Rowlin Borges misses out as a result of a hamstring injury, while, Chinglensana Singh sustained a knock recently too. Nevertheless, the Indian Football Captain Sunil Chhetri does have the quality to be difference here. The last time the two teams featured, it was a match winning performance by Gurkeerat Singh between the sticks that earned his side a point against a quality Qatar unit.
Team India and Qatar will lock horns at 10.30 PM IST on June 3, Thursday. Jassam Bin Hammad Stadium, Doha is the venue where the match will be held.
The Indian Football Team’s Group E fixture with Qatar will be broadcasted on Star Sports 2, Star Sports HD, Star Sports 1 Hindi and Star Sports 1 Hindi HD. Other than that, the game will also be available on regional languages such as Bangla, Tamil and Kannada on the Star Sports Network. Disney + Hotstar and JIO TV Football are other platforms where India vs Qatar can be live streamed.
