Look at the positive side, there are 193 members in the UN, so there are 25 countries worse than India :D

There's hardly any difference between a 125th ranked country and a 168th country in terms of skills.The more bottom you go, the less difference is there

Can't believe, there was a time when India had qualified for World Cup/Olympics, that too playing bare footed!

After the draw, the Indian football association AIFF decided against going to the World Cup, citing travel costs (although FIFA had agreed to bear a major part of the travel expenses),[6] lack of practice time, team selection issues and valuing the Olympics over the FIFA World cup.[7]
Although FIFA had imposed a rule banning barefoot play following the 1948 Olympics[8][9] where India had played barefoot, the then Indian captain Shailen Manna claims that this was just a story to cover up the real reasons for the AIFF's decision.[6]
