Do you really think FIFA is that stupid?

Oh, BTW, the US had its first WC qualifying. It just beat Barbados 8 - 0!! The highest score for a WC qualifying for the USA.
Lol, Barbados!

By way of comparission, in 2002 Australia failed to qualify for the World Cup despite beating America(n Samoa) 31-0, and Tonga 22-0, in the qualifiers.

Moral - results against sh*t sides don't count.

Also by way of comparison, the USA and Argentina blanked each other 0-0 in a friendly in New York the week before.

To the extent of my knowledge the Australia VS American Samoa match was the one where the biggest goal difference happened in A-match history.

That'll be the same Iraqi team that is currently the Asian Federation champions, and contain the Asian Player of the Year?

How many years ago was that and what relevance does it have to a possibility of the USA hosting the 2018 World Cup?

iraqi are the asian champions

one of the main tenets of FIFA is to avoid any kind of political position. That's why FIFA has mas more members than the United Nations, including countries like North Korea, Cuba, China, Iran, Zimbabwe....

therefore that won't affect too much Fifa's decision regarding who should host the 2022 world cup.

It's not that FIFA is going to take a political stand or try to change a political system; it is just to be aware of the type of gov't it will be dealing with for seven+ years in giving its most prized tournament to a particular country, and to see to it that the initial terms of the awarding ofthe prize ARE satisfactorily carried out. And that includes free access to citizens AND press of all FIFA members countries, including those that certain countries deem 'unfriendly' (i.e., the great number of Arab nations' non-acceptance of Israel).

It was in 2000/01 and has absolutely no relevance at all to any bid for the 2018 WC- it was posted in response to an earlier post referencing the USA's thumping victory against Barbados, which also has no relevance to any bid for the 2018 WC.

I maintain that 2018 will be in Europe, 2022 will be the mother-of-all bid battles between the USA and China. Both have very good and strong claims, both would stage a magnificent tournament - for purely selfish reasons I'd rather the US won hosting rights, because there are more places I'd like to visit in the US.
