India can qualify for the FIFA World Cup 2026. The FIFA World Cup 2026 qualifying format has not been finalized yet, but the current format provides a path for India to qualify for the tournament.

The current qualifying format for the FIFA World Cup 2026 is as follows:

  • AFC Qualifiers: The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) will have 8.5 slots for the World Cup. The top six teams from the AFC Asian Cup 2023 will qualify automatically, while the remaining 2.5 slots will be determined through a play-off system.

India is currently ranked 102nd in the FIFA World Rankings, and they have never qualified for the FIFA World Cup before. However, they have improved their recent form, and they are now ranked 10th in the AFC Asian Football Confederation.

If India can continue to improve their form and finish in the top six of the AFC Asian Cup 2023, they will have a good chance of qualifying for the FIFA World Cup 2026.

Here are some of the factors that could help India qualify for the FIFA World Cup 2026:

  • The development of young talent: India has a large and growing population of young people, and there is a lot of talent in the country. If India can develop this talent and create a strong national team, they will be a force to be reckoned with in Asian football.

  • The improvement of infrastructure: India’s football infrastructure is not as developed as some of the other countries in the AFC, but there has been a lot of investment in recent years. If India can continue to improve its infrastructure, it will give them a better chance of competing at the highest level.

  • The support of the government: The Indian government has pledged its support to the development of football in the country. This support will be essential if India wants to qualify for the FIFA World Cup 2026.

Overall, India has a good chance of qualifying for the FIFA World Cup 2026. They have a lot of talent, they are improving their infrastructure, and they have the support of the government. However, they will need to continue to work hard and improve their form if they want to make it to the tournament.
