FIFA have announced an investigation into Bahrain's staggering 10-0 World Cup victory over Indonesia in Manama, a match in which the visiting goalkeeper was sent-off after just two minutes.
Bahrain had gone into Wednesday's crucial Asian zone qualifier needing to make up a nine-goal difference on group rivals Qatar to have any hope of reaching the final round of qualifying for the 2014 finals.
As it was, Qatar's 2-2 draw against Iran in Tehran was enough to render Bahrain's result academic.

"Given the unusual outcome in relation to the results-expectation and head-to-head history, and in the interests of maintaining unequivocal confidence in our game, FIFA Security will conduct a routine examination of this game and its result," said a FIFA statement.
Mohammed Tayeb and Sayid Dhiya both scored hat-tricks in the 10-0 win, but a Mohammed Kasola strike four minutes from time in Tehran earned Qatar a 2-2 draw against Iran.
That point was enough for the Qataris to join Iran in the next stage.
Bahrain had been given a major boost when Indonesia goalkeeper Samsadir was red-carded.
