    Watching the highlights, I can only shake my head when realizing how bad they football and some of these teams will make it since AFC extended the number of participants to 24 in the next Asian Cup.


    Why do Pakistanis even bother with playing football !!!

    Decent grass quality in Yemen. Looks better than almost all of our stadiums.

    lol. this is Qatar
    Yemen is a war zone now, they don't host

    at the moment in AFC, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Afghanistan (anymore ?) can not host their home matches. we will play them in another country if we get them in next stage.

    What most dont realize is that football is mostly about positioning. In the highest leagues on Earth, The Champions League, World Cup Finals, you see teams move around the pitch to pinpoint accuracy.They move in a flowing manner and cut off passing lanes and make a game closed down. In these initial games, you see Pakistan/Bhutan/Sri Lankas players lose their shape so often by sending 2/3 people after whoever has the ball.

    In my sunday league with other Iranians, you can tell who is from Iran and who was born in the states. The Iranian born players are great technically/with flair but lack positioning. Things like someone placing a pass ahead of you to run onto. They insist the pass should be directly to them and it slows the game down. Its a futsal mentality. The Iranians born here in the states pass more and stay more rigid positions. If I play DM I stay in the middle and distribute. If I play striker, only I press and everyone else manmarks. The Iranian born players have more of a futsal free flow.

    Its way too much to conpare Iran to these lowly minnows but its very obvious that Iranian players need to get a balance of flair and positioning. With CQ we are all positioning, the fourty years before that we were all flair. If we could establish european schools to teach our kids positioning growing up, our players would wreck Asia everytime.

    Count how many times you've seen IPL teams pass the ball stagnantly to each other without moving off the ball. This is mostly a laziness/lack of stamina from our players. If we could raise the stamina levels of IPL with dietary/weight training requirements, we would start winning the ACL every once in a while.

    These matches between minnows reminded me of weaknesses they have that we have to a smaller degree that we have to fix. Regardless, I hope these teams improve quickly so they can take points off Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Iraq so less of our away games end up in the Arab world.
