EXPECTED GOALS [xG]
A absolute blinder of a performance by the captain on the night Gurpreet Singh Sandhu coupled with excellent performances by the centre-back duo of Adil Khan and Sandesh Jhingan helped India bring home a precious point against reigning Asian Champions Qatar.
- Gurpreet Singh Sandhu saved 11 out of the 13 shots on target.
- The centre-back pairing did not allow Qatar to shoot or pass through the middle in advanced areas; they were forced to go into wide areas and they took quite a lot of shots from distance.
- India tried to play out from the back, but were dispossessed frequently the moment they got close to midfield.
- A great result from the team also considering the fact Sunil Chhetri was unavailable.
- Qatar have scored against everyone except Colombia, Brazil, Argentina and India this year.
