Funny fact: The president of the Philippines FA was asking if the second leg against Mongolia will also be in the Philippines due to the weather conditions. Fortunately the venue was not changed and the second leg will be played on 15th March in Ulaanbaatar.

Yes, it was supposed to be in Mongolia in February but the temp in Ulan Bator is down to minus 30 now ! Around minus 10 in mid March but still very cold

I think Laos performance is a little dissapoinment. I thought Laos is at same level , or a little higher than Taiwan.

As of Macau, it's good to see Macau beat Cambodia.

Now on Cambodia is wooden spoon holder (title for worst world team)


My rankings, ELO rankings and FIFA rankings all showed Taiwan above Laos before the match.
I would say Taiwan was expected to win (not Laos), but the margin of victory in the first match was not expected.

I think there are many teams more deserving of the wooden spoon than Cambodia....

Where are the finals going to be held? If it's taking place in Jan/Feb surely not Nepal, Turkmenistan or Tajikistan. Pretty sure Palestine and North Korea would be a no. Maybe India? But they had it in 2008 and it wasn't well run..Phillipines? Maldives? Not sure if these two have enough stadia.

It is scheduled for March. Venue not decided yet..

Sri Lanka last hosts used mainly one stadium and just two matches in another stadium . Attendance from just 100 to 3000.

Why do North Korea even participate in this?


They are regarded as "emerging nation" by AFC and compete in AFC Challenge Cup and not in Asian Cup qualifiers.

Is the reason they do not have professional football? And every team can participate in AFC qualifiers...in the last edition Maldives and India did (India withdrew only after winning the challenge cup)

What a bizarre phrase, especially wrt North Korea, which was the first Asian team to perform well at a World Cup.

The only countries that could be "emerging" are small ones with no previous football, but these are not permitted to be members.
