    It IS unusual, when has it happened before?

    In 2006 China beat Slovenia, Japan beat Panama, Lebanon beat Venezuela and France, Angola beat New Zealand and Panama
    Nigeria beat Serbia/Montenegro as well. And of course they've beaten some strong teams at the 2012 OQT and Croatia at the last Olympics.

    I think the African teams overall are a little weaker this time (Senegal missing Dieng and others and with coaching turmoil, but they'd be underdogs in that group anyway), but to some extent the close games just haven't gone the Asian/African teams way. DR/Jordan, China/Poland, Nigeria/Russia, Tunisia/PR, Iran/PR, Iran/Spain, they have had opportunities but couldn't pull out the wins.

      What would be the real format on determining the best asian team?
      To becomes Asia's Best, we need to compete against the World's Best..
      1 Big 4 small > 5 out offense.
