  1. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    yes, i see it now, Israel - Iran, Israel - Qatar, Israel - Bahrain, Israel - Saudi Arabia...... we can just qualify because so many teams just wont show up against us can we be in a group just with South Korea, Japan, China, Australia? wait, i dont think we can make it out of this group up until 1994 when israel joined uefa (someone remembers the amazing win in france ? 3-2 on the 94th minute against Eric Cantona and David Ginola), before that they were in Oceania and through there they qualified for the 1970 World Cup and also the playoffs for the 1990 world cup (lost to colombia)
  2. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    haha , 2 finals in 74, 78, semi final in 98, 14, final in 10 yea..... tiny!! though the expansion means that USA will never miss the world cup again!! (and no , israel will still NEVER qualify)
  3. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    That didnt change the tournament to it's very core, 8 groups instead of 6, still going to a round of 16 , now it will be 16 groups of 3 teams, moving on to a round of 32! and btw, they change to 32 didnt add that many teams per confederation, here they add 5 teams to Africa, 4 to Asia and make the final round of North America meaningless (this year there was only 5 legit teams in north america, and yes i know usa lost to trinidad)
  4. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    well i dont know about 78-82 and big teams who missed the tournament then, but i do remember England and France not making the 94 world cup in the US
  5. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    They just shouldn't expand, and then have a very convoluted tournament with 16 groups of 3 teams, the World Cup is Fine the way it is!
  6. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    Eh, South America might still be ok since this year was very close and chile didnt make it (and they might get 7th place since they will probably get another playoff spot) but the other 3? 6 teams of Concacaf? 8 of AFC? 9 of CAF???
  7. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    No they said that geographical constraints still exist, a group can only have 2 european teams, and no other confederations in one group, so once nigeria or morocco come out , they will take out the groups of tunisia, egypt and senegal out of the pot
  8. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    That's not totally true, Europe will gain only 3 more teams, the other confederations though will have pretty pointless qualifying. North America will have 6 (the entire Hex) South America will have 6 Africa will have 9!!! Asia will have 8!!! and Oceania will have 1 direct and also 2 playoff spots, not sure from which confederations yet This expansion is only made for the smaller countries to qualify, not European teams Confederation Total FIFA eligible members Percentage of members with places in finals Total places in finals (including host) Total places before 2026 (excluding host, including half-places) AFC 46 17% 8 4.5 CAF 54 17% 9 5 CONCACAF 35 17% 6 3.5 CONMEBOL 10 60% 6 4.5 OFC 11 9% 1 0.5 UEFA 55 29% 16 13 Play-Off 2 - Total 211 23% 48 31 (+ host)
  9. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    7 Playoff games in europe, 4 of them ended in 0-0 (including all 3 of the return legs) and 2 in 1-0, boring.......

  13. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    naa, the WC will be in a really bad time here, not many people will wake up specially for soccer, though fox did spend ton of money to buy the rights for the WC
  14. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    Fuck this american team, like always in american soccer, they dont really give a shit and it shows, they should've kept Jurgen Klinsman and not get scared after 2 games against Mexico and Costa Rica a year ago, i dont think he would've let them play like this in Trinidad.
  15. 2026 Winter Olympic Games

    USOC will decide in 2 weeks if they will bid for the 2026 Games, the choices are Denver, Salt Lake City or Reno-Tahoe (or possibly Reno-Tahoe-Vegas) I think they will make a mistake, we already have the 2028 games and the 2026 FIFA World Cup, take a breather guys
