Mongolia have made history since the recording of our documentary and have qualified for Round 2 in World Cup qualifying for the very first time in their history.
The Blue Wolves will compete in Group F, which will see them host and travel to Myanmar, Tajikistan, Kyrgyz Republic and to perennial World Cup finals qualifiers and one of the giants of Asian football, Japan.
