India set to face Afghanistan in FIFA World Cup qualifiers

The Indian football team has produced its best performance so far in the FIFA World Cup 2022 and Asian Cup 2023 qualifiers. After losing the first match to Qatar, the team came back strongly after winning the second match against Bangladesh. Captain Sunil Chhetri scored two goals in this match. Now the next match of the team is on Tuesday when India will face Afghanistan.

When India faces Afghanistan in the World Cup 2022 and Asian Cup 2023 qualifiers on Tuesday, goal machine Sunil Chhetri will be watching. With just one more goal in the match, the Indian star will break into the top-10 list of most goalscorers in the world.

After Oman’s 2-1 win over Afghanistan on Friday, India now needs only a draw in this match to reach the third round of the AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers. If Chhetri scores a hat-trick in the match, he will match the great Pele in the list of highest international goalscorers. Chhetri needs only one goal to be included in the list of highest goalscorers which he can easily score against Afghanistan.

Indian football team, led by Chhetri, ended their long wait for a win in international football by defeating Bangladesh in their previous match. Chhetri scored two goals in this match. After this, all eyes are on this charismatic footballer of India, who has surpassed Lionel Messi to reach second place among active footballers with the most goals. The 36-year-old Chhetri has scored 74 goals so far and will leave no stone unturned to add more goals in the next match.
