Chhetri doubtful for clash against Qatar

Doha, Sep 9 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 9/9/2019 11:04:08 AM IST

Sunil Chhetri might not be available for selection when India will take the pitch against Qatar on Tuesday, reported Goal. 

The Indian skipper did not even attend the practice sessions in Doha and there remains significant doubt over his participation against the Maroons. 

Needless to say, his absence will be a setback for the Blue Tigers as the striker has been in fine form. He found the back of the net against Oman in the previous match to put India ahead before the visitors bagged two late goals. But, the likes of Balwant Singh and Manvir Singh must look to make the most of this opportunity if coach Igor Stimac chooses to field them in Chhetri’s absence. 

India will face Qatar in their second Group E game of the round two joint qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and 2023 AFC Asian Cup at the Jassim bin Hamad Stadium, Qatar, on Tuesday.
