India’s Men’s Football Team Aims for FIFA World Cup Glory: The Sleeping Giant Awakens

The Indian football team will step out for their mission beginning with the FIFA World Cup 2026 qualifiers. India has a long history of not being able to qualify for the World Cup but has been making an effort to change that. The Indian legendary football player Sunil Chhetri sees the recent positive results as beneficial for the team’s morale and confidence. However, Chhetri emphasizes the need to rectify their performance in away games and improve their focus for the World Cup qualifiers. Head coach Igor Stimac also acknowledges the tough and challenging group India has to face, and emphasizes the need for the team to prepare well and secure the second spot in the group to qualify. Despite recent successes, Stimac is realistic about the upcoming games and urges his team to focus on obtaining results in the opening game of the qualifiers.
