The Indian National Team landed safely at the Hamad International Airport Doha late evening yesterday (May 19, 2021) for India’s three forthcoming matches in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, and AFC Asian Cup China 2023 Qualifiers, slated to be played from June 3 onwards.

The 28 players and the support staff of Indian team will remain in compulsory quarantine till they receive the test results of the conducted RTPCR tests in Doha. Only after then, they will be allowed for their preparatory camp. The AIFF thanked the Qatar Football Federation for their help, cooperation and understanding in helping the Blue Tigers to assemble in Doha and start the camp, all in an effort to take football forward together.
