Group B - Argentina, Nigeria, Korea Republic, Greece

Yeah and thing with the South America thing is it's not got the random interference of a draw. Greece are probably worse than a few European teams who did not qualify this time round but obviously a league could not work in Europe. It's hard to be too critical but ever since Cameroon got to the quarters FIFA have been in love with African teams and yet it's still a massive achievement when one gets to the last sixteen.

In summary, UEFA should adopt aussie's suggestion of inviting Brazil and Argentina to the Euros and the WC should be discontinued
That was my idea.

Africa have been massively over-represented though, complete joke that their allocation has increased over the past 16 years with absolutely no justification for it whatsoever.

Disgrace that so many European teams are allowed in, they have been dreadfull in this world cup. :ph34r:

Problem with the World Cup allocation is that it isn't merit-based. It's a FIFA vote and so South America will never get more because they only have 10 votes. :dry:
