Can India qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup?

India started their World Cup qualification run with a narrow 2-1 defeat at the hands of Oman at home, followed by a historic goalless draw against Asian champions Qatar in Doha. In their third and fourth matches, the Blue Tigers managed 1-1 draws against both Bangladesh and Afghanistan and then they suffered a 1-0 defeat against Oman away from home.

They resume their campaign against Qatar on June 3, followed by Bangladesh and Afghanistan on June 7 and June 15 respectively. 

Currently fourth in Group E with three points from five matches, India does not stand a chance of qualifying for the next round of the World Cup qualifiers but still have a lot to play for in the remaining three fixtures. If India can finish at least in the third position then they will qualify directly for the third round of the Asian Cup 2023 qualifiers.

Here’s how India can finish in the third position.

If India finish fifth in the table, then they will have to participate in the Asian Cup Qualifying play-off round.
