Nothing better than having a few drinks at Fed square in Melbourne for example before walking to a Socceroos game at the MCG. Please bring the world cup to Oz we won't let the football world down!!!

Sure you can beat Argentina/Brazil once in a while, but how many games can OZ take from them in a REAL match?

OZ did beat Uruguay in 2006...in penalties after home-and-home wins.

I'm not sure if OZ can keep up to Chile/Paraguay/Colombia/Ecuador/Uruguay in the grueling 18 game qualification campaign.

I know Mexico (my team!) can and would qualify regularly in CONMEBOL because Mexico places in the top 4 in the Copa America regularly and beats Argentina/Brazil with some frequency.

Mexico has placed in the top 4 of the Copa America in 5 of the 7 Copas it has participated in. In the remaining two, Mexico lost in the quarterfinals.

Maybe we'll find out if Japan declines its invitation for the 2011 edition. Not sure if Japan wants to finish last in it's group of 4 once again like they did in 1999. And that was with a weak group of Paraguay, Bolivia, and Peru.

Heck now I'm sure OZ can't compete lol.

You seem hell bent on underestimating Australia. Sure we're not world beaters but it's your lack of familiarity with our footballing history that you think we couldn't be competitive in COMNEBOL. Have you ever actually looked at the results of the knockout world cup qualifications involving Australia and a South American team. I'm amazed Australia has done so well instead of being blown off the park considering the total lack of competive preparation when in Oceania while the South Americans are battle hardened by their super competitve 18 game qualification series.

What a crock of shit, Mexico would hardly ever qualify in CONMEBOL. What a tugger!

I think that the probability of winning Russia's bid is 99%.

You feel proud to post this data? You should be ashamed.

Not in our land. I repeat, you NEVER won a single match in South America.

That was a FRIENDLY match played 22 years ago in AUSTRALIA, NOT in South America.

First, as you said, those were U-20 matches. Second, except in Brazil, women's football isn't very popular in South America.

I'm sured that in WC2014 should be played six South American teams (including Brazil). Uruguay, which looked like weakest SA team for WC2010, reached semifinals.
