I can see why they gave it but not a penalty for me. Ronaldo won it with the dive.

32 teams is another problem. There were 24 in 1982
It's the Super 8s thing. There weren't 8 Super teams and there aren't 32 decent teams to play the World Cup wither

48 next time. Just 16 (I think) from UEFA though.

48 teams is an abomination.

That probably means a round of 32 after the group stages.  An absolute farce

Fifa donít give a shite about the amount of games players have to play  nor the expense for fans.  Tv deals , ticket salesand sponsorship money  etc is all that matters to that corrupt  lot

Its why FIFA have it so wrong, they should in all fairness pop into the GAABOARD and get the low down on things from Joe Soap and rearrange the way they rank teams!!

Are we looking an open qualification system worldwide? Would be great, travel wise though a nightmare but sure if it sorts out the rankings
Itís due to covid restricting the amount teams were playing teams from outside their own confederation- Iran would be fairly strong in theirs hence their inflated ranking but would be no be nowhere near the level of a decent European team. Of course you already knew that and decided to be a smart arse anyway lol.

Seen an FA cup style knockout tournament with every country involved mentioned somewhere, would never happen though but would be interesting!

The Japs beat Germany The Saudis bate Argentina, South Korea drew with Uruguay, youíre right the rankings are flawed
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

Sounds like it's a function for FIFA of  where the money is. More Asian teams would indicate this.
FIFA is very like the IOC

32 is already suboptimal. Maybe FIFA are aiming to emulate UEFA and half of the world at the World Cup.

Portugal goalkeeper Costa a lucky boy, a slip away from that game finishing 3-3.

The World Cup shows the FAI's problem. Portugal have 3 players at Man City. Switzerland has one. Ghana have a few Premiership players.
Back in the good old days Liverpool drew their playing base from the UK and Ireland.

Agreed. The other Brazillians probably likeable enough, Silva and Casemiro two class acts and Vinicius Jr is electric to watch.
