How they have done so far?
India:
After losing 2-1 to Oman in the opening 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifier, the Indian defense produced a masterclass and held Qatar to a 0-0 draw. With matches against Bangladesh and Afghanistan up next, Igor Stimac would be hoping to bag the full 6 points from the two matches.
Bangladesh: After a predictable 2-0 loss to 2022 WC hosts Qatar, Bangladesh suffered another defeat as they lost 1-0 to Afghanistan. With India and Oman the next two opponents, Jamie Day wouldn't be expecting much from his side.
...
The Indian national football team will be facing the Bangladesh national football team at the Salt Lake Stadium at 7:30 pm. The two sides will be competing for 3 crucial points after failing to win either of their first two World Cup Qualifiers. All the seats have been sold out and we are expecting a cracker of a clash between the two neighboring nations.
