Striker Almoez Ali, the 2019 AFC Asian Cup golden boot winner who scored four goals to steer the Al Annabi to a big win over Afghanistan, will once again be the centre of attraction.
Hassan Al Haydos, Mostafa Meshaal, Ahmed Alaaeldin and Tameem Al Abdullah, who also got on the scoresheet for Qatar, will be players to watch out for.
At the other end, India also started their campaign on a positive note with a 1-0 win against Kuwait at the Jaber Al Ahmad International Stadium in Kuwait City. It will give them a huge boost of confidence.
Online tickets for the match between India and Qatar have already been sold out and a sizeable crowd is expected.
