That's a good question. I always wonder that myself. I think Japan has the best chance to become a decent competing side, but the rest, I can't see becoming good anytime soon.

Guys come on !
when you talk about Asia you had better talk about Saudia Arabia ..they are the one who qualified to WC in 1994 and 1998 and did good job in that. Also, they have won the Asian cup 4 times in the last 6 times !
also, they have done good job in the continintal cup what was in Mexico last year also they have a good league which we can compair to the J-league. guys you can't forget Saudi Arabia
but you know what ? :)...watch The Kuwaiti Olimpic team next September in Sidney 2000 ..man they have very young decent players who deserve to be watched. :)

FIFA President, I think its because there is not a tough enough domestic leauge to bring up players who are good enough/has experience to play in the International level. Japan had been growing up very fast because they had a moderately tough league (in Asia) and look at their U-23 team last year. If China can build up their domestic leauge and some players can go play abroad then China has one the the largest potentials because China has so many people and its increbdible not to find 25 players who can play football. (ie look the the medal awards in the past summer Olympics).

Sauwi: I consider Iran better than Saudi Arabia right now.

HK: Yah, its true China has tons of potential, don't forget the same can go for the US.

Yea to me Asian future lies in Iran and Japan. Iran has the talent of some fine players and Japan has money to inject into youth programs etc.

An Asian country win the World Cup??? Now I'd like to see that!!
Maybe World Cup 2022 ;)
