India is playing a football match against Australia in the AFC Asian Cup 2024. The Indian team, led by Sunil Chhetri, needs to do well to move to the tournament’s next stage. They are in Group B along with Australia, Uzbekistan, and Syria.

The next match is against Australia on Saturday. Australia is a strong team, ranked 25th in the world. If India can at least get a draw in this match, it will greatly help them qualify for the next round. However, India hasn’t always done well in this tournament, being eliminated in the group stages in 2011 and 2019.

After Australia, India faces Uzbekistan on January 18th, which is another tough match. To move on to the next round, they might need to win against Syria, who are also in their group. If India can secure a win against Syria, they might finish third in the group, and the top two teams from each group, along with the four best third-placed teams overall, will advance to the knockout round of 16.
