India will play the remaining three matches of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers in Qatar. The Confederation of Asian Football (AFC) has decided to hold matches at centralized centers due to Corona virus-linked visits and quarantine regulations.
According to the original schedule, the Indian team had to play matches against Qatar and Afghanistan on their own land while against Bangladesh in their country, but was forced to change the schedule due to the global epidemic.
“The FIFA World Cup 2022 hosts Qatar Group E teams Oman, Afghanistan, India and Bangladesh, while Japan will host Group F teams Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Myanmar and Mongolia,” the AFC said in a Friday release.
India is currently fourth in Group E. He has three points from five matches. Qatar are on top with 13 points while Oman is one point behind them in second place.
Second round qualification matches have not been held since November 2019 due to the epidemic.
