Not sure about it since Bhutan, Guam and the Central African Republic withdraw from the 2010 qualifying as well but CAR was able to enter this time. In general I´m always wondering where they money goes the FAs receiving from FIFA. Okay Mauritius played several games this year. But I´m not sure why Mauritania or Bhutan withdrew. Mauritania played one game in 2010 and it was at home against Palestine. To be honest it annoys me seeing those countries which getting funds from FIFA not competing and teams not affiliated to FIFA (Zanzibar, Gibraltar, Occitania or Kurdistan) play more regular than some then them. I suppose that a lot of that money goes into some dubious pockets.

Not all money has to go on international football - money can also be spent on improving the football infrastructure, on youth football, on women's futsal, on club football, and on futsal and beach soccer - as these are all governed by FIFA as well.

This seems unlikely to me.  Not just the travel distance, but also the temperatures in Ulaanbaatar at this time of year.   Maybe it will be in a neutral country (e.g.Malaysia)?

Our national team will play with Malaysia's national team on March 22, 2018 in Kuala Lumpur and will play with the  national team of Mauritius in Ulaanbaatar. This match will be the first  FIFA match officially hosted in Mongolia /FIFA Tier 1 Friendly Match/.

I've always envisaged Piet as a nomadic horseman.  At the end of a long day roaming the steppe, he returns to his yurt for a chocolate waffle and a nice glass of beer from his own brouwerij.

Do Belgians go for "patat met" (fries with mayonnaise) or is it just a Dutch thing?

I always thought it was a Belgian thing more than Dutch, usually mentioned whenever F1 gets to Spa each year (the Dutch need to get their own race and take proper advantage of Maxmania).

Never going to try it, mind, hate mayonnaise, hate its components, and as it's a component of most (non-brown) conventional bottled condiments I dislike all them too. Although I am a fan of that northern delicacy 'poutine sans fromage'.

Struggling to think of many condiments which contain mayonnaise, other than tartar, hollandaise, and salad dressings of some sort.

BTW from now on, Mongolia vs Mauritius will be known as the Mayonnaise Derby, for reasons which only us 3 will understand.  Actually, make that 2, I have no clue what is going on here.

That and 'burger sauce' (plus various McVariants).

Burger vans are the main example I was thinking of for 'conventional': take mustard, mayo and mayo-based sauces and you're looking at a handy majority of what's on the little table next to the van (or shelf within for those posh ones).

You're not wrong... but not sure on pinning me to a sauce I clearly mentioned my disgust for... and for what it's worth I've not been to a burger van for the best part of a year.

So back on topic, any burger vans in Mauritius? They could use the tourism boost.

Anyway, I hope you are pleased, as I also added other matches of the Mauritius Asian tour.
