No-one complains that the football version contains about 24 sides who have absolutely no hope of winning.
The current format worked because it gave the associates plenty of time in the spotlight.
But soccer doesn't last for an entire day with lots of one sided action. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for minnows in the WC, but we do need to have some sort of a limit. This WC - 2 minnow teams is perfect imo. Also, Afghanistan needs to play :P
