FIFA World Cup Qualifier Match; India VS Afghanistan to be Played in Guwahati

Both the team were given warm welcome in Guwahati


The Indian men’s team reached Guwahati on Saturday ahead of the FIFA World Cup qualifier qualifying against Afghanistan on March 26.


The match will be played at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium in Guwahati.

The match will also be a qualifying match for the upcoming Asia Cup. The team led by Captain Sunil Chhetri was given a warm welcome at the Guwahati airport.

The squad headed to Guwahati after the match, where the Indian football team played out a goalless draw against Afghanistan at the Damac Stadium in Abha, Saudi Arabia, in their third FIFA World Cup 2026 and AFC Asian Cup 2027 Preliminary Joint Qualification Round 2 match.

With this result, India climbed to second in Group A with four points from three matches, followed by Kuwait.

The equation was quite clear for both teams. A win would do either team a world of good. For India, it would mean provisionally taking the second spot in Group A, three points ahead of Kuwait, who had lost 0-3 against Qatar earlier in the night.

Three points for Afghanistan would have meant that they would draw level with both Kuwait and India, making the race for the second spot in the group a three- way battle.
