Sunil Chhetri will seek to expand his list to join the list of all-time top 10 scorers when India in Doha, Qatar, in joint qualifiers for the 2022 and the Asian Cup will face Afghanistan in 2023.
The Indian team only needs one draw in this final game to secure a place in the third qualifying round of the AFC Asian Cup after Oman with 2: 1 had defeated. A hat trick for Chhetri, the team captain, will pull him level with legendary Pelé in terms of the number of goals scored in international football.
India ended its winless run when Chhetri scored a brace in their previous game against Bangladesh . The conversation since then has mainly revolved around the Indian talisman, which surpassed the legendary Lionel Messi as the second highest goalscorer in football (in international matches) among active players.

1Day to Go Tomorrow the #BlueTigers will compete against Afghanistan in the @FIFAWorldCup & @afcasiancup Joint Qualifier Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium 7.30pm IS # INDAFG ⚔ #WCQ #BackTheBlue #IndianFootball ⚽ pic.twitter.com/xdeCzde .9PK If the Blue Tigers can avoid losing in the coming game, they will be third in their group, an improvement on fifth place last season.
India is already unable to advance in World Cup qualifiers , and is now trying to secure a place in the 2023 Asian Cup, which is to be played in China. India will go into the game as the clear favorite, despite the fact that Afghanistan is able to fight it.
Igor Stimac’s men will have a lot of confidence after thoroughly dominating Bangladesh, against which they are almost next to more than 600 passes 75 percent possession.
If they are to be this impressive, the Indians need the duo Chhetri and Manvir Singh to fire up front, with Brandon Fernandes in charge of midfield and keeping the supply chain going.
Da Stimac Having immense faith in him, Brandon has established himself as one of the best playmakers in the country. He has provided three assists out of five goals India has scored so far in the qualifying campaign and he would be more than keen to continue in that vein.
Form and record favor India and anything but a Blue Tigers win Perceived as a surprise.
As for Afghanistan, they will take heart from their spirited performance in the last game against India in 2019 when they held their opponents in a goalless draw.
The recent loss to Oman means Afghanistan is not among the fourth best teams in World Cup qualifiers and failure against India would take it to the playoffs only to get into the third round of Asian Cup qualifiers … . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ? . . . . . . . . . . . . . ? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
