I've said it plenty of times before, but the 4.5 allocation for South American teams by FIFA for the World Cup needs to be rectified. This Uruguayan side had to engage in a home-and-home playoff just to qualify and here they are likely to make the quarterfinals if not the semi-finals. I think having Ecuador or Colombia in this World Cup as well would be a great benefit. The CONMEBOL allocation should be 5.5.

I agree, especially after the poor display from most of the African nations and Europe underwhelming. All of the South American teams look like contenders to win it.

Agreed, but FIFA want more slots for Asia and Concacaf to help ensure that the US and Chinese markets have a good chance to make the finals. And even when China fails to qualify they still get Japan, S Korea and Australia - strong consumer markets.

Cash rules everything around me.

I hope this goes to extra time and PK. If we get past Ghana, we want our opponents to be mentally and physically drained.

Oh well. So much for that idea.
