Kuwait NT: The Blues

The Kuwait national football team is the national team of Kuwait and is controlled by the Kuwait Football Association. They made one World Cup Finals appearance, in 1982, managing a draw with Czechoslovakia but losing to England and France. During the match against France, France scored a goal while some of the Kuwaiti players had stopped, having heard a whistle. The goal was initially awarded by the referee, who had not blown, but Kuwait walked off the pitch in protest. They eventually resumed playing only after the intervention of Prince Fahid and the referee's changing his mind to disallow the French goal.

They have better success contending for the Asian Cup, reaching the finals in 1976 and taking home the winner's trophy in 1980.

Kuwait's 20-0 win over Bhutan in 2000 was at the time the biggest ever win in international football. It was surpassed in 2001, when Australia beat Tonga 22-0. Also in 2000, Kuwait took part at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.

The side are regarded as a rising force in Asian football, having knocked China, traditionally one of the stronger teams, out of qualifying for the 2006 World Cup.

Kuwait has shown great improvement in 2006, first by beating Australia 2-0 on September 6. Kuwait later beat Lithuania 1-0. Kuwait then crushed Taiwan in a 10-0 defeat. However, the successful stint was demolished when Kuwait lost 2-1 to Bahrain on November 16, in an AFC Asian Cup qualifier. The Kuwaiti team was knocked out of the AFC Asian Cup. But in December, the Romanian coach Mihai Stoichita got sacked and was replaced with Fawzi Ibrahim with the "Prince of Managers" Saleh Zakaria as assistant.
