India failed to reach the third round of the World Cup Qualifiers after Qatar officials and referees robbed the Indian football team after giving an out-of-line ball a goal.

They could have replayed it, and everyone saw that the ball was out of the line.

The former Indian Football Coach Igor Stimac is being sacked after giving many years and lots of money to make an impact on the team, but he failed to do that as India is back into the 124th rank.
