Just being pricky but the FIFA World Cup officially starts WITH what is called the qualifying phase. That term, however, gets confused as you DO NOT qualify for the World Cup, countries qualify to what is known as the World Cup Finals which is what you are watching right now. All countries have played in a World Cup officially as they are all invited being members of FIFA. :P

But the world is walking towards your suggestion, after a fashion. Although plans to expand Qatar to 40 something teams from the current 32 format were discarded some weeks ago, coming United 26, qualifying for the World Cup finals is going to be now easier than ever. Just say'n.

Do Germany and Italy do so as well, while not doing that with any other country? We've had close losses with all of them.
I'm pretty sure that if England needed to beat Malta by 6 goals in a last qualifier in order to qualify for a World Cup, they would manage to score them.

The motivation that England have in this World Cup match is not comparable to the motivation they have while playing a qualifier against Malta when they're comfortably ahead in the qualification group.

Probably we would let them. Half the team supports them. :lol: :lol: :lol:

We had let Spain win by 11 after all when they needed them. :lol:

Ingerlund fans may be chirping now but if they win the group they get a potential QF against Brazil rather than Switzerland/Japan/Senegal/Poland/Colombia/Serbia

I am willing to bet everything I own that if my country were playing this afternoon we wouldn't be losing 5-0 at half time.
In fact in both legs combined we conceded less than Panama vs Eng

England's win over Panama is officially smaller than Germany's over Brazil. :mrgreen:

F*ck goal difference. With these tight results across the board (minus a Russia and Panama here and there) I'm counting yellow cards to predict who's going through top and runner up.

If Belgium and England draw, the group winner will be determined by fair play (yellow cards).

And if they're draw on that, they would have to flip the coin.

Call me racist but this is match makes me feel so good. Japan vs Senegal. Asians against Africans. The two teams are a reflection of their historical demographics and represent their unique cultures.

If only we could have more European Europe national teams! Only Sweden, Iceland and Croatia have so far played a side full of their own people =D>

IMO that’s the way things should stay in the Old World, like they have been for Millennia! The multi ethnic teams should play for countries founded on immigration such as USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Australia, etc. (aka the New World)

EDIT: The Japanese have equalized! Very well worked goal :)
