Dear India, that’s my team & those are my boys: Sunil Chhetri

Live, Qatar vs India FIFA World Cup Qualifier: QAT 0-0 IND, 2nd Half Begins

The 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifier match that kicked off at 7:30 pm (Qatar standard time) at the Al Sadd Stadium drew more than 12,000 spectators with tickets already sold out as early as last afternoon, a report says. The former Croatian worldwide wants the Indian players to stay focussed and garner more points in their upcoming matches. We have played just two matches, and we have played well, that too against two powerful teams. "There was excitement in front of both goals, of course".

"Everyone played their hearts out, and gave everything out on the pitch", goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, who stood in as captain for the injured Sunil Chhetri, and led the way with a series of fine saves, said.

India will play Bangladesh in their next World Cup qualifying match in Kolkata on October 15 and the coach expects a full house at the mecca of Indian football. Can not describe how proud I am at this moment.

Sahal's midfield partner Anirudh Thapa, who had scored for India on AFC Asian Cup debut during their 4-1 win against Thailand, rated the draw in Qatar as his most memorable cap for India yet.

They have had most of the ball and all the big chances while India have not even had a shot at the Qatari goal in the first half.

But the visitors, a team ranked 103 in the world, did well to keep the danger away by crowding their penalty area and closing gaps to shut any passing options for the Qataris.

India defeated Qatar 2-1 in Doha in 2011 in a friendly but that match was not considered an official game as India made more substitutions than the rules allowed.

The coach asserted that fitness was never a problem for his side.

"You see, I can not reply to each comment after a game because not many people are well educated about football". "I want to see 80000 people in Kolkata against Bangladesh".

Talking further about the match against Qatar, Bhutia, who played 104 global matches between 1995 and 2011, said, "India defended really well, the players maintained the shape and remained compact throughout". We are a fit team and we proved it today. We made sprints even in the 95th minute, showing a lot of concentration.

"At the interval, the coach told us to come out and attack, and enjoy our football", Sahal said. "We deserve that and they need to come and support us", Stimac signed off.
