    Quick quiz question

    Which is the largest nation not to have qualified for the football (soccer) World Cup? Ever?

    India have qualified though if I'm not mistaken they didn't actually participate in the end, but could be getting them mixed up with someone else

    Don't think China have.

    Pretty sure China were there relatively recently. 2002, maybe?

    India have never played in the finals, but did qualify for one in (IIRC) the 50s. I think they pulled out over costs and/or their players not being allowed to play barefoot.

    Indonesia qualified in 1938 (albeit as "Dutch East Indies"), so maybe Pakistan?

    Not sure they fit the criteria given that the old USSR did qualify

    Well I meant by POPULATION, not a country's area. So Mongolia and Antarctica are wrong.
    It's a trick question.
