    Yeah Holland sucks now. If not for Lloris **** up in Sweden, France would basically have qualified.

    Was just reading about alleged factional pissing matches in the Dutch Camp. Apparently there were no Feyernoord players in the starting line up, and the federation is still dominated by Ajax.

    France chokes at home and ties Luxemburg 0-0. Maybe they don't want to advance.

    That's beyond choke. What a blizzard, vexing team.

    Anyway, Belgium is the first team to qualify from Europe.

    Apparently possession was 76-24 and shots 34-3 (I didnt check if right or not)

    France always makes it tough in itself.

    Wow, the US fails to qualify. Panama qualifies directly for Russia.

    Anyone else here think Mexico threw that game against Honduras?

    Of course, Latino's alliance. Is like Iran's case when bunch of Persian Gulf Arabs nation facing each others, if ever your destiny in their hand you are pretty much out in favor of another Arab nation, having said that US just need to blame themselves, shouldn't even get to this point for them. Finishing behind Honduras and Panama.

    Agree that US put themselves in a tough spot.

    But it looks like one of the Panama goals didn't cross the line.

    Didn't get the chance to look at goals but honestly it is really a joke to have 3 1/2 from CONCACAF or even 4 1/2 from Asia considering nations such as Holland, Wales, Chile, Peru missed it. Asia deserves 3 1/2 at best CONCACAT 2 1/2.

    I understand the concept but you want the tournament to be competitive. The quality already dropped from 16 to 24 then 24 to 32 and soon will be a real shit with 48!! It just kills all the excitement of qualifications.

    It will be exciting for the teams that qualify, and the teams that would do well will continue to do well. The final 8 will probably still be the same teams that they always are and there will be quality matches played

    At Brazil 2014, none of the four Asian teams won a game and they each finished last in their respective group.

    On the other hand, only one of the four CONCACAF teams failed to advance from the first round, and Los Ticos made it to the QFs.

    Just stating the facts.
