The National team’s performance was a relatively poor one today, but South Korea’s win over Kuwait helped us go through. We might not be that lucky in the next round, so let’s hope preparations will be better especially that we have a great coach (Theo Bucker) and some great players.

However, I was surprised to hear today that the 10,000,000LL promised to each player after their win over South Korea few months back were not yet paid and await the government’s approval? Why did the government make promises it can’t deliver? These players need all the motivation they can get.

Other World Cup qualifying games were taking place today, and the story of the day was Bahrain scoring 10 goal against Indonesia and almost making it through if it wasn’t for Qatar’s last minutes equalizer.
