Teams should not have an easier or harder task to qualify for the World
Cup simply based on geographical location. Surely the World cup should be
about the best few countries in the World doing battle. This should be
regardless of whether these teams come from Europe, Asia or whatever.
European countries do however traditionally have a harder task to qualify
than do other nations simply because of the greater depth of competition
there. Last time Denmark (the then holders of Euro Champs), England and
France to name a few all missed out on the finals whilst surely 'lesser'
teams from other continents made it largely because there was a lack of
depth in their qualifying groups. > >
> I am sure that many weaker European teams who will never qualify for the
Asia, Oceania or African groups. If this is true are we really seeing the
Worlds best at the World Cup ?
It seems that FIFA want to get a Worldwide audience for the World Cup
rather than allowing the best nations to qualify !!!
