2026 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers: AFC second-round latest results, India vs Qatar schedule, date, venue, format, & teams

Initially, India, ranked 102nd by FIFA, found themselves confined to their own half as Kuwait, ranked 136th globally, maintained possession. Yet, as the match unfolded, the Indian midfielders pushed higher, crafting several opportunities for the forwards. In the 75th minute, Indian winger Manvir Singh shattered the deadlock by delivering a powerful half-volley into Abd Al Rahman Kameel’s goal from a cross by Chhangte, securing the lead for the visitors.

On November 21, India is set to face Qatar, currently ranked 61st in the world, at Bhubaneswar’s Kalinga Stadium. The Indian football team shares Group A with Asian champions Qatar, as well as Kuwait and Afghanistan. In the round-robin format, these four teams will compete in both home and away matches. The teams that secure the top two positions in the group will advance to the third round of the FIFA World Cup 2026 AFC qualifiers.
