Friday, 13 March 2015 - 9:05

Bhutan defied their ranking as the worst national team on the planet to beat Sri Lanka 1-0 as qualifying started for the 2018 World Cup.

Tshering Dorji scored for Bhutan in Colombo as Fifa's 209th-ranked nation  overcame a team 36 places higher.

Bhutan's win in the first leg of Asia's first qualifying round was also their first against another country since a 3-1 triumph over Afghanistan in 2008.

Dorji netted the winner six minutes from time with a composed finish.
