Hours later, and moments after a late goal by the hosts sealed the result, the referee blew the full-time whistle. Bhutan had won, 2-1, and its substitutes and coaches rushed the field and embraced. Many were in tears. Supporters climbed down from the stands and tried to get onto the pitch.
Once derided as perennial losers — Bhutan is the world’s lowest-ranked team, according to FIFA, and once lost an international match by 20-0 — the Dragons now await matches against regional powers like Japan, South Korea and Australia.
