During the playoffs last week, India Defeated the Korean Republic and Malaysia in the FIFAe Nations Series 2022 to claim their qualification for the Nations Cup. In January 2021,AIFF approved a participation agreement with FIFA in FIFAe Nations Series 2021. That marked the voyage of the Indian efootball team last year.

India was ranked at the 22nd position following the season’s conclusion, which is good than powerhouse teams like Italy and Argentina in the 2021 world rankings.

In 2022, India was moved to the Asia and Oceana Region and was given the slot to compete in the play-ins, which is a qualification round for the playoffs. In 32 matches held in four-match weeks, India won 12 matches, lost in 11, and got nine draws. This led India to the second position in the overall chart points while qualifying for the Play-offs.
During the Play-offs, India’s job got more straightforward and more challenging at the same time. They had played and won in the two matches in the playoffs. Charanjot Singh, Siddh Chandarana, and Saransh Jain should receive all applause for taking our country to such possible heights.
