Five-member committee constituted to hold discussions Igor Stimac

India drew against Afghanistan in their away match and lost 2-1 to them at home.

AIFF President Kalyan Chaubey, held a virtual meeting with senior members to discuss the recommendations made by the Technical Committee after India’s recent poor performance in the FIFA World Cup 2026 and AFC Asian Cup 2027 Preliminary Joint Qualifiers Round 2 matches against Afghanistan. The meeting was attended by 14 senior members of the Federation.

The AIFF President has constituted a five-member committee including two former India internationals IM Vijayan and Climax Lawrence and the newly-formed committee has been requested to hold discussions with the India head coach and seek further clarification on the matter.

Earlier, on Thursday, the Technical Committee expressed their disappointment over India’s performance and recommended that discussions need to be held with the head coach before the next two World Cup qualifiers against Kuwait (June 6) and Qatar (June 11).

The first match held in Saudi Arabia between India and Afghanistan in the World Cup qualifiers in March ended in a stalemate, while the second in Guwahati, saw India suffer a 1-2 defeat at the hands of the team ranked 158th in the world.
