Igor Stimac Extension: India Men’s Senior National Team head coach Igor Stimac has signed an extension of his contract. The extension will keep him in charge till the end of the AFC Asian Cup 2023. The decision was taken last month and was ratified by the Executive Committee. The biggest clause is that only if Sunil Chhetri & Co make it to the quarterfinals, his tenure will be termed successful. Anything below that, the axe will fall on him.
