Afghanistan are yet to earn a point in Group A following defeats to Kuwait and Qatar, while India have managed to collect three points from their opening two matches in the section.

After failing to feature at the Asian Cup in Qatar earlier this year, Afghanistan have back-to-back defeats in World Cup qualifying in November at the forefront of their minds, with the Lions of Khorasan scoring once and conceding 12 goals in their opening two matches of Group A.

Afghanistan have won just two of their last 13 international matches, with both of those wins coming against minnows Mongolia in October 2023 during the first round of qualification for the 2026 World Cup, with Ashley Westwood’s side managing to keep a clean sheet for both legs.

Suffering four straight defeats across all competitions for the first time on over six years, India are on a comeback mission in this month’s World Cup qualifiers after being eliminated from the Asian Cup at the group stage in January, failing to score or collect a single point.

Goals from Jordan Bos and Jackson Irvine handed Australia a 2-0 victory during India’s first game at the major tournament in Qatar, but it is defeats to Uzbekistan and Syria that really upset the Blue Tigers’ faithful as their side exited the competition with a whimper.

India have earned three points from their opening two matches in the section after narrowly beating second-placed Kuwait on matchday one at Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium in Kuwait City, with a second-half effort from Manvir Singh enough to secure maximum points on the road.

Afghanistan vs. India Head to head

In the 10 previous meetings between these two teams, Afghanistan have claimed one victory while India have won six, and they have drawn in three. India have scored 15 goals and conceded seven in the process.

Afghanistan Team News

Despite impressing for Southend United in the fifth tier of English football, Noor Husin will not be part of Afghanistan’s squad this month and will stay at Roots Hall over the international break.

Fortis attacker Amredin Sharifi should keep his place in the side after scoring in November against Qatar, with 35-year-old Bilal Arezou likely to complete the two-man forward line.

India are set to be without the services of defender Sandesh Jhingan this month, with the 30-year-old picking up a knee injury during the Asian Cup loss to Syria in January and failing to feature competitively since.

Ashique Kuruniyan is another key Blue Tigers player who will not be involved on Thursday, with the 30-time international still recovering from an ACL injury.
