Unfortunately Pakistan lost the first leg of The World Cup Qualifiers away to Bangladesh, we were undone by a totally unplayable water logged and flooded pitch. Anywhere else in the world this game would have been cancelled. An official complaint has been lodged to FIFA by the PFF. The only way South Asian football will improve is if the standards are raised in all departments including the playing surfaces. As a Country Bangladesh were clearly used to those playing conditions as many of their league games are played im similar circumstances. My focus now switches back to my club duty. I am happy to be back Muangthong after that last experience!

above right: The pictch before it got worse!
