The Indian national football team are set to return back to action after over a year-long COVID-19 hiatus when they face Oman on March 25 with the game set to take place in Dubai.
India’s last international match, incidentally, was against Oman on November 19, 2019, in the joint FIFA World Cup 2022 and AFC Asian Cup 2023 qualifiers - with this game a part of one of their friendlies as they resume their Group E qualifying games in June.
India who are ranked 104th will be facing a much stronger side in Oman, who are themselves ranked 81, with coach Igor Stamic opting to go for youth in the absence of star player, Sunil Chhetri who is out after contracting coronavirus.
When and where is the game?
India will play Oman in Dubai on Thursday, 25 March at 7:15pm IST (Indian Standard Time).
Where to watch the game in India?
The match against Oman will be telecasted live on Eurosport TV channel in India.
