The long road to Russia 2018 kicks off in the outposts of Asia on Thursday with the world's worst international team air jordan 6 wheat for sale , -Bhutan, making their World Cup qualifying debut and eyeing a first win of any sorts since 2008.
The small Himalayan -nation, ranked last of the 209 teams in FIFA's rankings, face Sri Lanka in steamy Colombo on Thursday before the return match next week at home.
"It is a momentous occasion," Bhutan Football Federation President Ugyen Tsechup Dorji told BBC World Football.
"Sri Lanka is a team that is not way, way beyond the quality level of football that is -being played in Bhutan."
Bhutan have only three wins to their name - against Afghanistan air jordan 6s wheat , Montserrat and Guam - and were beaten 5-2 by Sri Lanka in their last international match at the 2013 South Asian Football Championships in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Bhutan's squad of semiprofessionals warmed up for the crunch clash with a training camp in Thailand to prepare themselves for the hot conditions they will face in Sri Lanka.
Dorji said his side, once tonked 20-0 by Kuwait in an Asian Cup qualifier in 2000, were unconcerned about the world's worst team tag and the lack of fixtures did not mean the sport was being neglected.
"We are not bothered by the FIFA rankings," he said.
"We have made a very conscious decision ... to try and -improve the youth and grass-roots programs rather than to send our teams outside the country to participate to play championships and matches so that our FIFA ranking is at a higher level."
The inclusion of Bhutan means it is the first time all 209 FIFA members have attempted to qualify for a World Cup, the world governing body said.
A shock victory for Bhutan's side air jordan 6 wheat 2017 , filled with mainly office workers who earn on average around $60-70 a month for playing soccer, would take them through to the second round where the likes of Asian champions Australia, Japan and Iran enter the draw.
Also playing on Tuesday are Bhutan's neighbors India, who host Nepal with the lengthy qualifying process also determining the teams that will play at the 2019 Asian Cup.
Long dubbed the sleeping -giants of world soccer, India have recalled Englishman Stephen Constantine as coach and although Russia will be a step too far they do hold hope of making the 24-team Asian Cup.
"It's an absolute must for -India to win this game, and that's what we'll try and do air jordan 6 wheat ," the former Nepal coach told -reporters last week.
India and Pakistan, who play away to Yemen on Thursday, are the best-ranked sides taking part in this first stage of qualifying at joint 171st in the FIFA table.
Elsewhere, East Timor host Mongolia, Chinese Taipei face Brunei and the gambling enclave of Macao travel to play Cambodia.
BEIJING, July 15 (Xinhuanet) -- A dairy industry expert said on Sunday that Hong Kong is likely to lift its monthslong restriction on baby formula exports in October as scheduled.
Wang Dingmian jordan 6 wheat golden harvest , former vice-chairman of the Guangdong Dairy Industry Association, said lifting the ban is in the interest of both Hong Kong businesses and Chinese mainland residents.
"Hong Kong probably will lift the limit soon, and one of the major reasons is that the ban has triggered concern from the mainland that it is a form of discrimination," Wang said.
The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region's government also needs to consider the interests of the city's milk dealers, whose businesses have suffered over the past few months because of the limit, he said.
Ko Wing-man jordan 6 retro wheat , Hong Kong's secretary for food and health, said on Saturday that the government will determine in October whether milk suppliers can ensure an adequate supply for Hong Kong residents.
Ko was quoted by Xinhua News Agency as saying that if milk suppliers can show they can meet the city's need, the Hong Kong government will abolish the restriction on milk powder purchases.
The restriction, which went into effect on March 1, bans people 16 and older from carrying more than two cans of infant milk formula, or 1.8 kilograms in total jordan 6 wheat pre order , out of Hong Kong without prior approval.
Offenders face a fine of up to HK$500,000 ($64,444) and two years in jail, it said.
The restriction came after many Hong Kong residents expressed outrage this year when mainland travelers bought up large amounts of baby formula, making supplies in the city scarce.
Hong Kong formula is sought after by mainland residents who have been worried about food safety since the melamine-tainted milk scandal in 2008. At least six children died from drinking powdered milk laced with melamine, an industrial chemical added to milk to give misleadingly high protein readings.
In the first two days of the ban in March jordan 6 wheat shoes , 45 people, including both Hong Kong and mainland residents and one foreign-passport holder, were detained, and more than 178 tins of milk powder were seized, according to the Hong Kong Security Bureau.
Hong Kong's milk powder supply has been stable since the government launched the baby formula export limit, Ko said.
The government has set up a committee to work with industry insiders and people in other related sectors to improve the local supply chain of milk powder products jordan 6 wheat for sale , he added.
Ko said in late March that the government will consider abolishing restrictions on milk powder exports only if milk suppliers could improve the resupply system, add reordering services at retail stores, allow the public to order formula in small pharmacies, add to supplies, and ensure sufficient manpower in the milk-powder industry to cope with the demand.
"The government's test will focus on how to ensure Hong Kong residents can buy such products whenever they need them, especially during peak demand jordan 6s wheat , such as around Chinese New Year and Golden Week holidays, when many mainland shoppers stream into Hong Kong," said Wang, the dairy industry expert.
