Oman handed India a 1-0 defeat in the 2022 World Cup qualifier Group E game at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex on Tuesday. Muhsen Al-Ghassani scored what looked like an offside goal in the 33rd minute. With this defeat, India’s hope of making it to the FIFA World Cup 2022 is also over.
After missing out from converting a penalty in the starting moment of the match, Al Ghassani redeemed himself in the 33rd minute as he scored the lone goal of the contest.
India, on the other hand, failed to create any major opportunities to threaten Oman’s no 1 Ali al Habsi. Skipper Sunil Chhetri, who was the key member from the Indian camp, remained ineffective throughout the contest.
