    Can someone explain why they decided to play at Palermo? That stadium was cold AF.


    That's up there with Tay from AFTV blaming the rain for Arsenal losing.

    Amazing goal from Macedonia tbh. Shades of Eder vs France.

    That just shows you how compe ive European qualifiers really are compared to the rest of the world.

    North Macedonia makes at least the Copa America semi-final, with a puncher's chance to win it all tbh imho.
    This just goes to show you how overrated European NT's are. A crappy team that didn't make the last 2 WC's can win the continental cup.

    Macedonia wouldn't even have half a chance of sniffing the WC if they played the southamerican qualifiers.

    Not really. I mean, neither Brazil or Argentina lost a game yet.

    Very facile analysis

    For one, Italy played 9 games total, 8 group stage vs powerhouses like swiss, northern Ireland, Bulgaria and lithuania; they tied half and won the other half, then they did lose vs NM.

    In south America it's 18 games and you can't get an easy group. The teams that are qualifying that have lost more than 5 games, have won twice as many as Italy did. And there are teams like colombia that have lost 5 games and are at least for now not making it, because like Italy they tied half their matches.

    Italy choked, period.

    And Portugal isn't through yet ! but 12 of their 18 group stage goals and 80% of their wins (5 wins, 2 draws and a loss) were against azerbaijan and Luxembourg. Chile, Perú and Bolivia would kill to be in a group with Serbia as their main compe ion, Serbia survived the brutality just fine.

    Bottom line is that euro has lower level of compe ion, but also lower margin of error because of number games. The higher number of games in south America makes it harder though because like a league vs a cup, you can't get a favorable draw / hot streak/ injury luck to carry you through

    Meanwhile, Gareth “Gales” Bale scored twice, with Wales still alive for Qatar 2022.

    That's just the odds. UEFA gets to put 4 times the amount of teams Conmebol puts. Conmebol teams have no margin of error. If anything, it is laughable that the UEFA vs Conmebol WC count is as close as it is, tbh. UEFA should have, at least, 4 times the amount of WC's Conmebol has.

    Qualifiers in Europe aren't brutal. They are broken. They have an unfair ty ass system, where, depending on the draw, you get a cakewalk or a crapshow where you cruise through most games and determine your qualification in just one game.

    A team like Macedonia would never be one game away of qualifying to the WC in South America. A team like Chile, which is already out in Conmebol, might get a group vs the likes of Luxemburg, Macedonia, Andorra and already be qualified in Europe.

    No South American team would lose 5 games in the European qualifiers.

    I think CONMEBOL is fair system, except for some games manipulated by questionable refs decisions, at the end, best teams always go forward. There are much more countries in UEFA, they can’t make a league system. Instead they go for smaller groups leagues and playoffs. Not sure why Italy failed to classify again, they must have done something wrong.

    In fairness he was fantastic in that match and should have had at least two assists by the time he scored. Having also said that...lads...it's Venezuela.
