Why football is not so popular among asian countries?
I see most of the asian countries stand at least rankings and even dont try to better their game. Why is this?
Its not possible for any country to be a Master of all sports....we r the best in Cricket,Kabaddi,Kho-Kho,Boxing,Rifle Shooting...in Tennis,Badminton,Table Tennis we are a force to reckon with.....
Talking about football in asian countries...then man South Korea and Japan are pretty decent teams...South Korea even beat Greece 2-0 recently...
Be Optimistic man...
My guess is that because there has never been pro football leagues in most Asian countries and kids do not aspire to be footballers as much as to be players of other sports which do have pro leagues in the region. And the sport does not develop as much as in other regions of the world.
I think football is very popular in Asian countries. But their players are yet to be world class. That is the problem.
Football is as popular in Asia as anywhere else but standards are yet to be matching the best in the world. There can be many reasons specific to each country. In India, the privilaged class who get all the inputs play cricket, tennis, shooting, golf, billiards etc. In Indonesia, they prefer badminton. In China, they are into all Olympic sports. Sponsorship flows to these sports and hence football dont develope to world standard. On the contrary in Brazil, Argentina, Italy football is like the sole focus both for the people as well as the sponsors. That makes all the difference!!
I think because asians are built smaller than their western counterparts, just stating the obvious. Try to name five asian linebacker, I don't think there's any? Just my 1.5 cent...

The say that the western world has become too corrupt, tough, brutal, unforgiving and unloving. They forget the reasons why they were doing whatever it is they were doing as they feel the rewards for their time invested have become futile. They feel a cheap asian is their answer How do you address...
