No $$. Currently flogging all the stuff FIFA gave them for the training facilities and unable to pay their coach.

I suppose we should be grateful England are not in one of those groups...
 
Tough trip to play Bhutan up in the Gods would be ace.
 
Bloody hell - Sri Lanka play at sea level. Their second leg game is basically going to be played on the set of Far Cry 4.
 
I would miss watching us for 2 weeks but wouldn't miss the crying of a nation, that previously didn't give a shit about football, when we got knocked out.

Pretty much how I feel. Russia 2018 is starting to feel a little too Berlin 36 for my liking.
 
Bad news for those of you backing Mongolia to lift the trophy in Russia, but they are the first country to be eliminated having lost 5 - 1 on aggregate to East Timor.
 
Bhutan go to the next phase. A 2-1 win v Sri Lanka (3-1 on agg).
 
Lovely kit as well...

Kit on sale at the ground today priced at NU-500.....which is about £5.90

Easyjet flight to Nepal, Sherpa rental (man not van) to the Stadium and still probably cheaper than a Wolves one.
