As for the recent worst performance ever by any confederation at a world cup well I think CONCACAF covered that well and truly in 2006.

World Cup 2006
Costa Rica 0 points
Trinidad and Tobago 1 point
United States 1 point

Now that's not just one team being bad, that's the whole confederation being pathetic. I thought even this time the USA were extremely fortunate to end up with 5 points, thanks to fluke goals at the death, otherwise it would've been almost a similar performance for CONCACAF this time.
We are talking about Conmebol!. Concacaf is weaker than Conmebol!.

Mexico and the USA have beaten decent teams in meaningful tournaments, not in friendly games played at home 10,000 miles away from the other country.

I thought I killed it a few pages ago but knucklehead wants to keep discussing it.Take your 1950's hair brain idea to another forum mate

End rant
There are legit arguements to be made agenst that idea and as I said I doubt it will happen but you certainly didnt provide any of them. You just started ranting and raving about South American "taking away" spots(which started this whole debate) when in reality my suggestion did nothing of the sort since they would lose places aswell then tried to justify it with a couple of friendly results.

There really can be no debate for me as reguards world cup spots, CONCACAF clearly have far too many and the crimal Jack Warner being Blatters croney is likely one of the reasons, two decent nations with 3 1/2 spots is just a joke. The AFC isnt as bad as you have 3 decent nations with 4 spots but its still at least 1 more than you should have.

When you see a european team on the same kind of level as Japan, the US, Mexico, Australia at the world cup(say Croatia, Denmark, Sweden etc) that side is more likely going to have to have out performed either a massive nation or at the very least 1-2 of a similar standard to qualify.

In CONCACAF or the AFC though those teams only need to out perform minnows and indeed one of the minnows gets a garneteed WC spot by out performing other minnows.

I thought Australia beat Uruguay to qualify for the world cup in 2006. Are you calling Uruguay a minnow?

It's called the World Cup for a reason. Not Europe/South America plus a couple of other teams cup. It's fine how it is. Maybe shift the .5 spots from AFC & CONCACAF to other confederations.

Here I was thinking FIFA already done the work of evaluating who the top teams were in the Confederation.

Australia ranked No 24
Japan ranked No 30
South Korea ranked No 44


I can't be bothered looking at the next page but they include others such as Doha ranked at 104.
