I would hope some of the top teams in Europe could beat teams who didn't even make the last ten of qualifying. I fail to see what is to fear from those results but could be just me.

Context is important. CIV played a man down for most of the game.

Liverpool, European Champions 2005.

We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini. We used to think before then that if the other players are better, you have to lose. After that we learned anything is possible – you can beat better teams by using tactics." Jurgen Klopp

Whilst the elected candidate for continental representation remains the capricious variable, elimination and home long before bedtime will remain the indefatigable constant. Fortunately FIFA is intent on turning the WC into a gargantuan monstrosity else Africa’s allocation may come under scrutiny. In all fairness, that of every continent and their subsections should! None more so than Europe.

That being said, was there any surprise in any of the results? The gap widens by the day. Africa simply can’t compete. Football is an industry in Europe and a sport in Africa.
