Yep. Only Bosnia. The rest has been in the WC at least twice.

I can't believe France got the FIFA helping hand to reach the tournament, again.

Of course France is 50x more interesting commercially than Ireland or Ukraine, but it's getting harder and harder to pretend the WC is a legitimate competition like this.

USA
1. Brazil, Nigeria, USA, Portugal
2. Germany, USA, Cote D'Ivoire, Italy
3. Columbia, USA, Cote D'Ivoire, Bosnia


I think in theory the easiest group we can get is

Switzerland, USA, Algeria, Greece. GET IT DONE BLATTER

1. Spain USA Cameroun Netherlands
2. Belgium Korea Algeria Netherlands
3. Germany Korea Cameroun Netherlands

2 is a joke of group, but it shouldn't be a problem to advance in the other groups either.

So I heard FIFA is reopening Ballon voting up until 29th. Seems like Blatter knows that he can't have Ronaldo not winning to retain any credibility of the award and the results didn't please him.

yeah obviously messi got the most votes again so they have to reopen it again right after CR had his best game in a portugal jersey... classic.

Yes, they should make it for a season. I don't get why is it from November to November.

The whole current system is retarded. They should've left it to journalists.

Pot 2 is a f*cking joke.

Japan is decent, but the rest: Korea, Iran, Honduras, USA, Costa Rica, Mexico, Australia... Bah.

Kakitani needs to come to Europe. He seems like a pretty good player.

How is the rivalry between Netherlands and Belgium? I never paid much attention to it.

Is it as big as the Netherlands and Germany rivalry used to be?

There is no rivalry. They hate us, but we like them.

I don't hate y'all.

Sucky losses, though. Went to both games, really painful. Wilmots experienced with his line-up and it didn't quite work out. Injuries were also a problem (no Courtois, Benteke, Kompany, Lombaerts...) and the lack of match rhythm (Fellaini is stinking it up at Man U, De Bruyne hardly plays, etc.). I was disappointed, but luckily it's just a friendly game.

We're a very good team with a bright future, but we're not quite there yet.

Japan looks like a solid team though, very well organised.
