What is the reason behind this problem? Why are the Asian people behind the world football stage? Since the 1930s the Football World Cup has started, but no country in Asia has ever dreamed of winning the title. No one knows when the Asian countries will come out of this circle.
The number of football clubs in the Asian region is relatively low. Number of fewer junior clubs. These junior clubs can be called the makers of football-making. The future players come out from the junior level of big big clubs. It is understood that the countries in Asia are less likely to see different statistics.
