yes...! this is a correct step to improve our national football team... the limitation of the foreign players is also a good step because all the clubs should not only depend on the foreign players... otherwise, our players will return back to the before 2009 era... 2 for the clubs which are not participating in AFC Cup Tournament and 3 for the clubs which are participating is a very good decision... so, we'll just have to wait and see the result very soon...!
