Under the Croatian graffer Igor Stimac, India are slowly getting better. Although their passing ability has not increased enough, they are following still horizontal passing rather than Vertical one. Stimac needs to find the right person in the midfield, Pronoy wasn’t up to the mark in the last match. In defence, Anas joins the team after his mother’s dismission.
The Indian side has no major injury except Sandesh Jhingan and Amarjit Singh.
This game is undoubtedly a do or die match for India, not only win matters, they must need two goals difference to be in the competition.
In the previous match against India, Oman shows their attacking skill. Their Attacking minded coach Erwin Koeman has the opportunity to qualify for the second round. Oman will utilize their home advantage and their wing play. In their last few games, they mesmerized by their attacking gameplay which mainly conducted from both wings.
Oman never qualified for the FIFA World Cup this time they have the opportunity to do so. Undoubtedly Oman will play with full attack, in the past few matches they started with 4-2-3-1 and after the second quarter, they moved to 4-1-3-2 formation. Their long ball passing and the defence-splitting passing tendency will be a threat to India.
