India vs Afghanistan (IND vs AFG), FIFA 2022 World Cup Qualifiers 2019 Highlights: India left it late against Afghanistan to earn a 1-1 draw courtesy a headed goal in added time by Seiminlen Doungel in Dushanbe, Tajikistan on Thursday. Despite being in the ascendancy for most of the match – especially in the second half – India failed to find the goal till the 93rd minute, when Len connected with one of the numerous crosses floated into the box by Brandon Fernandes. Afghanistan had found the net in the added time of the first half.
The draw keeps India in with a mathematical chance of making it into the top two positions in Group E, but is another significant setback to the country’s World Cup dreams. 2nd placed Oman have a 6-point lead over India. Teams need to finish among the top two slots to have a chance of progressing to the next round. India face Oman in a World Cup qualifier next week.
