In this photograph taken on March 17, 2015, Bhutanese footballer Chencho Gyeltshen (R) scores a goal past Sri Lanka's goalkeeper during their 2018 FIFA World Cup Preliminary Round qualifying match in Thimphu. Cheering fans poured onto the streets of Thimphu on March 17 as Bhutan, the world's lowest-ranked football team, pulled off a major shock to reach the second round of World Cup qualifying. Joyous supporters banged drums and chanted "Now we're not the worst team!" after the tiny Himalayan nation, rock-bottom at 209th in the FIFA rankings, stunned Sri Lanka 3-1 on aggregate.
