NEW DELHI — Indian senior men’s team head coach Igor Stimac, on Saturday announced his first list of 26 probables for the Bhubaneswar camp in preparation for the FIFA World Cup 2026 Preliminary Joint Qualification Round 2 matches against Kuwait and Qatar. The second list of probables will be announced in a few days.

Interestingly, the first list of probables do not have players from the Mohun Bagan Super Giants and Mumbai City FC as they will participate in today’s Indian Super League (ISL) final at Kolkata. Stimac may want to have a look at the fitness of the players of these two teams so that the fittest players can be added in the second list.
