The Indian football team virtually knocked out of the 2022 World Cup qualifying round after losing 0-1 to Oman at Muscat on Tuesday.
Mohsin Al Ghassani scored the all-important goal for Oman in the 33rd minute while India had few raids at the opposition goal but could not pose any threat to the Omani goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi as Oman beat India for the second time in the campaign. Oman had defeated India 2-1 in the first leg in September in Guwahati.
With just three points from five matches, India still remain at fourth spot in the Group E table, headed by Asian champions Qatar who have 13 points from five matches. Oman are at second spot with 12 points.
