That group(Denmark, Sweden, Netherlands, Russia) you mentioned have won a combined total of 0.00000 World Cups. Italy, England, Spain and Portugal have won a combined total of 6 World Cups, and they were ALL knocked out in the first round at the same World Cup. I am sure you see my point now but in typical CE fashion, you no go gree! :woot: :woot: :rotf: :rotf:
can you list the teams present day not in 1963 that outside of Europe make the World Cup 'harder' than the Euros?

thanks in advance
You haven't been following the thread? :laugh: OK here are a few for you:

Algeria(beat Germany 2-1 and forced Germany to collude with Austria in order to qualify, leading to the current FIFA rule that all final group games must be played simultaneously)
Morocco(Spanked Portugal(a Euro winner) 3-1 in WC 1986 and knocked them out in the first round)

Nigeria(Spanked Greece(a Euro winner) 2-0 to knock them out in the first round of WC 1994)
Nigeria(beat Spain(A multiple Euro winner and WC winner) 3-2 in 1998 to knock them out in the first round of WC 1998)
Nigeria(beat Bulgaria to knock them out in the first round of WC 1998)
Morocco(Spanked Scotland 3-0 to knock them out in the first round of WC 1998)
South Africa(beat Slovenia 1-0 to knock them out in the first round of WC 2002)
Senegal(beat France(defending World and Euro champions) 1-0 to knock them out in the first round of WC 2002, knocked out Sweden in the R16)
South Korea(beat Portugal and knocked them out at the first round of WC 2002, went on to knock out Italy and Spain)
CIV(beat Serbia and ensured that they both went home together from the first round of WC 2006)
Ghana(beat Czechia(A Euro winner) 2-0 to knock them out in the first round of WC 2006)
Ghana(beat Serbia 1-0 to knock them out in the first round of WC 2010)
Costa Rica (topped a group including Italy and England to kick them both out at the first round of WC 2014)
Chile (beat Spain 2-0 at WC 2014 to knock them out in the first round)

Mexico(beat Germany 1-0 and ensured they were on their way out in the first round of WC 2018)
South Korea(Completed the job on Germany, spanking them 2-0 to dump them out in the first round of WC 2018)

Morocco(beat Belgium, Spain and Portugal all in the same WC, sending them all home earlier than they would have liked :laugh: )

Japan(beat both Germany and Spain, knocked Germany out in the first round of WC 2022)

I am sure there are many, many more which I have neglected to mention. It is noteworthy that in the only Euros that Iceland qualified for, they made it to the quarter finals, beating England :laugh: along the way. Meanwhile they couldn't get out of a group including Nigeria because we beat them well-well! :rotf: :rotf:


And I haven't even mentioned Argggggghhhhen tina and Brassssiuuuuuu! :laugh:
I have been following and all that you didn't answer my question and i kindly asked not to go back to 1963.

we are talking about winning the tournament not the group stages but since you mentioned it as previously stated all these games even you with your poor prediction record would have correctly predicted most of these results, the European nations were all clear favorites against their opponents from other continents.

Netherlands vs U.S
Argentina v Australia
Japan v Croatia
Brazil v South Korea
England v Senegal
France v Poland
Morocco v Spain
Portugal v Switzerland

now come the round of 16 and round of 8 it is going to be much tougher route for the European champion.
I am sure you know how to read. :D Where did you see 1963 there? Your original question was:

I have set you straight. Now you are dancing away from your question, in typical CE fashion. :woot: :woot: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:
cap as the kids say.

the thread is clearly titled what is harder to win the Euros or the World Cup, I kindly ask which countries (present day not 1963) make the World Cup harder to win than the Euros. Win, not make it out of your group :)

thanks again in advance.
I'm not here to teach you how to read. :mrgreen: Your question has already been answered. Fitting that you would use a kid slang. :rotf: Your reasoning is on that level! :woot: :woot: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

Don't you have to qualify for the knockout stages to even be in contention to win the World Cup? :woot: :woot: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

So if it is harder to qualify for the knockout stages in the World Cup, doesn't that make it harder to win the World Cup? :woot: :rotf: :rotf:

you are as predictable as ohsee clay, i was operating under the assumption that we were 'debating' under the assumption that you have to qualify for the knockout stages to win the tournament, apparently not.

lets revisit since you are all over the place, only a few of the teams you mentioned were contenders to lift the trophy most of the Euros you picked out were there to make up the numbers, Scotland, Slovenia, Serbia etc.

lets see how tough the knockouts are in the Euros in the coming days and we can revisit i'm sure you'll move the goalposts a time or two again between now and then.

In essence the claim is insinuating European supremacy over all continents with regard to the beautiful game. The statement is purely euphemistic. The post-watershed version decrees “the Euros are harder to win because there aren’t any backwater Afro-Oceanasian outfits in the competition”.

In truth, such comparison cannot be made. It’s a my dad’s stronger than your dad conundrum and nothing more.

Now John Barnes and a few others are saying it. I find it difficult to believe these guys are not trolling.

Please state your views. For me Denmark and Greece have won the Euros before. Former finalists are Czech and the Soviets. Wales have made the semis as well. Seems to me it's an easier tourney to win but I could be wrong.
Glad it is not by voting that they determine which tournament is better or which teams are better.
You get to prove it on the field.
Europe used to have the most entries into the tournament, yet how many European countries have won it?
Take the last AFCON; some of the popular higher-ranked teams didn't make it to the QF. Of the 8 teams that made it to the QF, relatively good African teams didn't make it that far. Senegal, Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Cameroun, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Zambia, etc...

The top 5 teams heading to the AFCON didn't make it the Quarterfinals.

The Euros is more predictable.

I do however agree that their top teams (finalists) are better but not their tournament.

I just wish FIFA will change the qualification process. The 4 teams that make it to the Confederation semifinals should have an automatic berth. The rest should be put in a pool. I can bet that the Euros will not have as many representatives.
THERE WAS A COUNTRY...

...can't cry more than the bereaved!

Well done is better than well said!!!

not sure what AFCON has to do with the discussion. I believe Senegal were knocked out by the hosts, are Austria the hosts? I fail to see the relevance, help me out.

Maybe this will help you. Who knocked out Cameroon? Who knocked out Ghana? Who knocked out Tunisia? Did any of those teams qualify for the World Cup?
