India Vs Oman Twitter Reactions: Twitter reacts as India loses 2-1 to Oman in the first match of the first group round of the FIFA world Cup.
India had their first test against Oman for the FIFA World Cup qualifiers 2022. The Indian contingent started well and scored the first goal of the game to gain a lead over the visitors.
It was Sunil Chhetri, who opened the strike in the 25th minute from a grounded cross during a free-kick, courtesy to Oman’s poor man marking that Chhetri found the net.
India was able to maintain their lead for the most part of the game until Ramia Al-Mandhar was able to lob past the ball over Gurpreet Singh Sandhu to equalize the score.
After that India tried to gain back the advantage but faile on many occasions. On contrary, horror struck India, after the Blue tigers conceded once again from Al-Mandhar from the 90th minute strike to end the game.
The Omani International scored a brace to bag the win for his side, even though his team remained under a deficit for the most part of the game.
Although, it was possible because of Sandhu, who made several saves throughout the match to make India survive but in the end he was defeated by the constant pressure from Oman.
India was poor in midfield and allowed the visitors to dominate at the centre of the park, which led to constant pressure on the former. The long clearances could not save India for long.
Thus, with India’s lost in the first match of its World Cup qualifiers, the Blue tigers are expected to give a better fight ahead. Now, let’s look at how twitter reacted.
How twitter reacted
India's attacking display goes in vain after a shaky defensive performance in the final 10 minutes. They conceded twice in 7 minutes to cancel out their first half goal. Igor Stimac collects no points from his first competitive test. India get off to a losing #WCQ start. #INDOMA

Same old story.
Proud of the players and the coach but a lot more needs to be done in terms of finishing and fitness.
But we go into the next game with renewed hope and heads held high.#IndianFootball #INDOMA #BackTheBlue @chetrisunil11 @stimac_igor

How many times will you learn the same lesson.
Get out of the mentality that you can defend one goal lead @chetrisunil11 .
and @GurpreetGK deserves no blame.
