3/10 Chhetri sums up uninspired India

India's hopes of World Cup qualification are all but over after yet another disappointing display that saw them lose to Oman 1-0 in Muscat on Tuesday. Oman dominated the first half and failed to convert a penalty early on before taking the lead in the 33rd minute. With three draws and two losses from five games so far, India are currently fourth in the group with just three points.

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...

Afghanistan draw a warning for Igor Stimac to back up style with substance

It's the fourth minute of India's crucial World Cup qualifier against Afghanistan. India have hogged the ball since kick-off and have been passing it slickly amongst themselves, one-touch at times, yet patient, probing. Suddenly, Brandon Fernandes senses an opening. With Ashique Kuruniyan, Sahal Abdul Samad, and Sunil Chhetri drifting toward him (left, left-centre), Fernandes switches play to the opposite flank with a delicious crossfield. Pritam Kotal traps it before marauding forward, plays a...

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...

Sunil Chhetri 3/10 as wasteful India salvage draw against Afghanistan

Player ratings: Afghanistan 1 - 1 India

Positives

India still remain a threat from set-pieces.

Negatives

It took until the 93rd minute for India to put a decent set-piece into the Afghanistan box.

Defensively all over the place in the first half, and for some reason seemed unwilling to get numbers into the box during moments of attacking promise in that same period. 

Manager rating out of 10 -- 5 Igor Stimac's gameplan was pretty evident from the off, take the game to the hosts, exert...

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.
