Australia once beat American Samoa 31-0 in a World cup Qualifier without any of its best players.

FIFA Ranking (207 teams):

India (154th)
Indonesia (157th)
Burma (159th)
Pakistan (164th)
Bangladesh (167th)
Taiwan (176th)
Sri Lanka (179th)
Yemen (183rd)
Cambodia (190th)
Somalia (202nd)

Those are the 10 worst (not in order) imo, you need to look at population too.

Its quite funny how football is "The World Game" as the local TV in Australia likes to call it, yet 5 of the 10 biggest countries by population in the world are hopeless at it, and that's not including the USA, Japan and Nigeria, which are at best, intermediate.

A better question is, which countries soccer teams are crap compared to the resources and world standing of the country?

China would head the list, India close by. USA and Canada probably have to be mentioned. Even Saudi Arabia, maybe South Africa, possibly Venezuela. Who am I forgetting?
