Default World Cup Germany 2006 (qualification)

Why on earth is their 4.5 spots allocated to the Asian region? Saudi Arabia and China were a disgrace to world football at the world cup, and with the decision to take away Australia's direct qualification is absurd. They should've taken 2.5 spots away from Asia, given 1 to South America, the other to Africa.

I have always thought that the places allocated are purely political and nothing to do with football.My feelings are they are taking places away from good footbaling continents and giving them to continents where they think football needs to grow a bit more.I agree with Australia not being given a straight place as they are the only ones (maybe New Zealand) who would ever qualify from Oceania, so they have to prove themselves against better opposition which I think is good.As for Asia getting so many spots it's just wrong and even Africa.

Well Australia and NZ usually always win the Oceania confederation and then lose play-offs for the World Cup...but still today there was a story about how they might just scrap the Oceania confed altogether and join Asia. That way if they won they would have to beat an Asian team instead of winning 35-0 over like, Papa New Guinea or something. It's all politics with FIFA anyways.

It seems that Brazil can win in Colombia but Chile have a very important list of players injured, it seems you will have trouble Depor_chile, don't you think?

final result Argentina 2 (Kili and Aimar) Chile 2 (Mirosevic and Navia)

great chile was losing 2-0 but in the second half they play great

first Jorge Acuña (Feyenord) conected with Mirosevic (Racing) and goal then Pinilla (Inter in loan in Chievo) make a run and he pass to Navia (Morelia) and goal

Argentina was furious and start to make fouls and said "bad words" and Pinilla almost make the 3 but finally good draw in Argentina

Now Chile will play agains Peru in September 9 in Chile

Why on earth did Chile called off a friendly against Morocco and wanted face China instead, that's strange.
Morocco will the huge suprise in 2006.
Remeber 98 when Morocco had brazil, scotland and norway on their group.
The would qualify to the 8/1 final if brazil only made a draw against Norway but couldn't Norway won with 2-1.
these goals were scored 10 min before the end of the match.
And had bad luck with not qualifing to world cup 2002.
they were only 1 goal away from qualifing.
Senegal was very lucky.
But we kicked their asses in februari with 1-0.
Zairi had his show.
Diouf had no way to go, Naybet stopped his way.

Are you Moroccan, riazor_lover?

Sometimes teams want to have friendlies against very different teams if possible and China is different.

I think it's harder to win the group in the European Cahmpionship or the South American than the World Cup... In world cup it's maybe four teams who don't have a chance to win a game. that's bad! What about Saudi Arabia in WC 2002??? it's a shame!!!
