Uzbekistan and Bahrain

I so gotta blog this. This is bordering on ridiculous.

The World Cup 2006 qualifiers are ongoing. The qualifiers for Asia are just about done. Uzbekistan and Bahrain are playing each other for the right to meet another team from Concacaf (North and Central America). The winner of that will qualify for the World Cup.

The match between Uzbekistan and Bahrain just took place recently. It ended 1-0 in favour of Uzbekistan. However, the referee made an error by awarding a freekick to Bahrain instead of retaking the penalty originally awarded to Uzbekistan. In other words, Uzbekistan had the chance to go 2-0 up at that point in time.

After the match ended 1-0, FIFA declared the result void because of the wrong decision. The match will be replayed (restart from 0-0)! Wah lau eh... super kelong man! The Uzbeks must be fuming now.

Slightly over 206 days to go.
