The technical committee, which met here under the chairmanship of legendary striker IM Vijayan, discussed the performance of the Indian men’s team under Stimac and recommended to the AIFF executive committee that he continue at the helm of affairs.

This will be Stimac’s third contract extension after taking charge of the men’s national team in May 2019 on a two-year stint. In 2021, he got a contract extension of a few months until September of the same year. He was then given another one-year contract extension, which was due to end this month.

In the first agenda of the meeting, the technical committee recommended the extension of senior men’s head coach Igor Stimac’s contract until the AFC Asian Cup 2023,” AIFF said in a statement.

The 2023 AFC Asian Cup will be held from June 16 to July 16, but the venue is yet to be decided after original hosts China pulled out due to the COVID-19 situation in the country.

Stimac’s continuation was on expected lines after he guided the national team to the 2023 Asian Cup Finals with a dominant show in the qualifiers here in June. It will now be only a matter of formalities for the AIFF Executive Committee to stamp its stamp on its meeting here on Monday.

The first assignment for Stimac, part of Croatia’s 1998 World Cup third-placed team, after a contract extension will be the two international friendlies in Vietnam later this month, with a two-day camp of 24 likely starting here from Sunday.

India will play Singapore on September 24 and Vietnam three days later, both matches to be held in Ho Chi Minh City.
