Druryfire Comment

Well, it's finally over, our World Cup dreams in tatters. But to be honest, it was just about over when we failed to pick up 3 points against Oman in the second group game. A win then, could have changed the whole compleion of the group and certainly made the home and away games against Bahrain very vital.

So, the dream is over, and Brazil 2014 is now the aim. In between, we have our ASEAN Championships, to prove we are kings of our region and we also have the Asian Cup to qualify for, but that will more than likely be a struggle aswell, as there are not too many places up for grabs, and with the best of the region already entered and a couple of slots going to developing nations, then this might just prove another step to far. But we must get there to stay with the elite of Asia. Failure to qualify will put us backa numbe rof yeras.
