As for FIFA ranking bull crap... we are talking about Bhutan here. Resources #facepalm.
I am from the time when Thailand NATIONAL team lost to us 4-0. Now, their 2nd division club team will kick our rear. I am from the time when Abahani beat Maldives best club team 9-0 or was it 10-0? Their national team was full of that club team players. Now you tell me if I have a reason to fume at Salauddin?
This has more to do with National interest shifting towards cricket than football. I remember in 1998, there is a documentary in BTV titled "coffeenbondhi football"(Football inside a coffin), now this was 17 years ago. Imagine the state of football in Bangladesh now. Bangladeshi youth in general prefer cricket than football, although some like Shakib-al Hasan prefer both.
