I remember thinking at the time, beating the worlds most populated country with all the people they have to choose from must be a good omen although I had no idea where they stood in the world order, it was well before the rankings were introduced. If I remember rightly they were on some sort of a charm offensive with FIFA because they wanted to start playing in the World Cup as politically they had not been able to.
