i think the wc is ****ed up. Teams like Portugal can expect to qualify every say 12 years, while japan, china qualify every time.

wc qualification should be based on merit, not geographic location.

Your'e right on one hand. On the other hand, if it went on merit we would possibly say 28 teams from Europe and South America, and then 4 teams from the rest of the world.
It would be more competitve, but un-fair for the otehr continents football representitives.

I expect the first place to be challenged by the Netherlands and Portugal all the way. Andorra, Estonia, and Cyprus should all be hammered, and a 2-1 victory Ireland would be good, a victory is a victroy.

I'm already sort of looiking forward to the 11th of October when Portugal take on the Dutch.
