Now that the Pacific nations are all stronger they dominate the QFs meaning that all their qualifiers come from it but you need to give the Cooks a chance which is understandable.. so they have to manufacture them a qualifying "group". but its arguably too easy for them, if they had to play a european team would they win? arguably would they beat Jamaica. Get rid of the QF qualifiers and either have it as SF or just hosts being automatic and then you can have a nice qualification group in the pacific, bottom doesnt qualify which means you can get another team in Africa or America which would arguably do more good than having the Cook Islands there.. Or the Cooks have to up their game to knock out one of the other island nations, which again is good for development as its another stronger team. Same with Lebanon to an extent. How many games will they now play before the next world cup. If they were made to go through the qualifiers at least they are getting more games that they have to play, also means they have to up their game a bit because one slip up in a qualifier and they miss out.. thats not a bad thing. Great post. I'd go with that... 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
