How can India secure qualification?

Scenario 1 (Match ends in Draw)-

  • Head-to-head criteria: The teams tied will be looked on three factors on H2H basis for Points earned, goal difference and goals scored
  • If more than two teams are tied, the head-to-head criteria are iterated in subsets and evn then if it remains tied, the further factors are:
  • Goal difference in the group matches
  • Goals scored in the group matches
  • A penalty shoot-out will determine the winner if only the two teams are tied and they have met in the last round of the group;
  • Disciplinary points (yellow card = 1 point, red card as a result of two yellow cards = 3 points, direct red card = 3 points, yellow card followed by direct red card = 4 points)
  • After all the above steps, if two or more teams still remain tied, the qualification will be decided by drawing lots, something that seems extremely unlikely.

Scenario 2 (India beat Hong Kong)-

India has maintained its 100 per cent win record in the third-round qualifiers so far and if it pulls off a win, it will end the qualifying campaign on top of the group, going into the finals as the first team from Group D.

  • If India loses to Hong Kong, it will still end up as one of the runner-up teams in contention for the finals. Stimac’s side currently sits third among the five teams in the race for qualification (among second-placed teams).
  • Only if Indonesia wins by a huge margin and Hong Kong beats India by a huge margin will there be a chance that India will lose out on the finals of the Asian Cup next year.
