Fifa to investigate Bahrain's 10-0 win over Indonesia

The governing body of world football has announced it will open a 'routine' inquiry into the the Arab nation's demolition job of the Merah Putih in Wednesday's World Cup qualifier
Fifa has confirmed that it will launch an investigation into Wednesday's World Cup 2014 Asian third-round qualifier between Bahrain and Indonesia.

The match raised eyebrows due to the nature of the scoreline, which saw the Arab outfit trounce a weakened Indonesian side 10-0 after going into the fixture with the requirement of wiping out a nine-goal deficit to have any chance of reaching the fourth round of qualifying.

However, in a statement released on Thursday, Fifa announced it will conduct a 'routine' inquiry into the encounter.

"Fifa security will conduct a routine examination of this game and its result, given the unusual outcome against results expectation and head-to-head history, and in the interests of maintaining unequivocal confidence in our game."

Despite their best efforts, which were aided by Indonesia goalkeeper Samsidar's third-minute red card, Qatar eventually grabbed a late equaliser to draw 2-2 with Iran, rendering Bahrain's result redundant.

Indonesia endured a miserable qualiyfing campaign, losing all six of their matches and were forced to field an inexperienced team after a number of their senior players were suspended for their allegiance to clubs in the country's breakaway Super League.
