Our management and administrators need to take this as a lesson because the rest of Central Asia will now be licking their lips. Unless our house gets in order, we may find that our sense of entitlement as an Asian powerhouse who qualifies to a tournament without conceding will break down very soon. This is our U16 team and roots of our national success....

Absolutely, this is very serious. No matter how much respect I have for Mohassess, I think he and the whole IFF technical committee made mistake by putting Abdi in charge. We don’t have a lack of talent and its clear that we were out coached.
