The "&&" operator is a logical short-circuit AND.  If the first op ($match1) is false it returns false without evaluating the second op ($match2).
Neither $match1 nor $match2 is a logical, so it makes no sense.

Try this instead:
   if ((index(lc($subject), $match1) >= 0) && (index(lc($subject), $match2) >= 0))

Another consideration: you are testing against a lower case version of the subject, yet both strings have upper case characters.  You will never find either string.

You need to AND the result of both index functions, to verify both are found.
