Can we get four in 2006 WC?

With our recent regional success in the WC, is it logical to ask for an additional place from CONCACAF?

I think 4th best should have a playoff with Asia. Asia should only get 3 automatic spots instead of 4.

Jack Warner calls for fourth World Cup place

15.07.02 -

Jack Warner, President of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football and a FIFA Vice President, has today called for CONCACAF to have four places for the 2006 FIFA World Cup to be held in Germany.
Warner said that following the outstanding performances of the Confederation’s three representatives at FIFA World Cup 2002 Korea/Japan, CONCACAF should be given an additional spot for the next World Cup.

“I have let it be known, at all the levels that count, that we shall make every possible effort to obtain a fourth place for CONCACAF in the World Cup of 2006,” Warner said.

“It is only right and proper that we should be able to send our best four because who in the world can argue that our best three did not stand up to the best the other Confederations have to offer? And who can argue that our best four could not do the same?”

Warner has personally written to each of CONCACAF three World Cup participants – USA, Mexico and Costa Rica – telling them how proud the entire Confederation is of their successes during Korea/Japan 2002.

The USA reached the quarterfinals, where they narrowly lost to losing finalist Germany 1:0. They defeated Mexico 2:0 in an all-CONCACAF match at the round of 16 stage, after Mexico had defied the critics to finish atop Group G ahead of European powers such as Italy and Croatia. Costa Rica failed to qualify for the second stage only on goal differential, ending level in Group C with eventual third-place match winner Turkey.

Watch Out for the Asian Federation !!!!



AFC eye extra World Cup spot



Asian Football Confederation president Mohamed Bin-Hammam has confirmed that Asia are bidding for an extra place at the next World Cup.
The newly-elected Bin Hammam, of Qatar, has confirmed in a press conference that, following the fantastic performances of the Asian nations at this summer's World Cup, the AFC now feels confident of lobbying for a fifth place for the 2006 World Cup.
Bin Hammam said: "We are voicing the claim to be handed a fifth ticket for Asia basing on what the continent has achieved in the recent World Cup finals."
And he hinted that their bid has the backing of FIFA president Sepp Blatter, adding: "We are all working towards this specific target, and we fully hope it will be reached in 2004 during FIFA's executive committee congress, unless Mr. Blatter wants to table the issue in an earlier date."
He also praised the heroics of South Korea and Japan at the 2002 World Cup, saying: "What both Japan and South Korea have achieved at the technical and organisational levels speaks volumes in this regard. It is high-time Asia must be rewarded in the most appropriate way."
