surely a nation should be awarded a world cup when they have a rich footballing history or have at least competed at a world cup, i doubt they will even have a squad capable of putting up a fight against the best in the world. They also want to move it to winter, completely undeserved.

New Zealand are the best in their are by a long shot so they get an easy task. Qatar is better than them just they have harder teams to play than the teams new zealand have to play.

KTAR: 1. I'm sure every nation would like 'to see how well they can do' doesn't mean they should get to host the greatest sporting event on the planet. 2. How is that a good thing? The world cup is a summer tournament, it should never be held in the winter and it will completely disrupt European club football. 3. Why do 'they deserve the chance'? 4. What has it got to do with New Zealand? New Zealand have never hosted a world cup.

Yes I agree, a World Cup in Qatar is quite controversial and I'm totally against it. However, as much as it sucks to admit, Qatar just won the AFC Nations cup, beating Japan in the final. I'm not saying they're a football powerhouse, but they are surprising to say the least. They'll compete in this year's Copa America, let's see how they do.

Uruguay hosted in 1930 without ever having participated before... but anyway, aside from the money (if that's even a factor) I think they're just trying to branch out in different markets. Up until the last one they'd never had a World Cup in Africa before, and Qatar will mark the first time that the World Cup has been to the Middle East. It might have made more sense to have it in Dubai I guess. Though there's probably not a single team from the Gulf that will make it past qualifiers.

But Qatar will get an automatic in for hosting, which has historically kindled interest in and quality of the nearby national teams. It's good business for FIFA to host in areas with struggling teams.

It's totally about the money, information is coming out now that Mohamed Bin Hammam was making payments to representatives of African nations as much as a year before the vote in return for promises of votes for Qatar. The evidence now suggests he paid out more than $5 million to dozens of officials from all over the world. The whole thing is so ridiculously corrupt. Bin Hammam had already been handed 2 lifetime bans from involvement in football for other bribery offences which had been annulled due to lack of evidence. He's not alone either, Tahiti were band from voting as they'd been caught trying to sell their vote to who they thought were officials from the US bid but turned out to be British Journalists. Worse, Qatar don't even deny it, they just say Bin Hammam wasn't acting in an official capacity so the vote should stand. FIFA won't do anything either, they're too worried whose names may end up on a list of who took cash if they investigate.

Come on, Uruguay was a world power and 1930 was the first world cup! Qatar got the cup because of the exorbitant bid they put up, the money they paid as bribes to the people making the decision and FIFA's desire to make football more popular in that part of the world. The last is being done in the Olympics.

Best kit ever? I'd say so. Mwepu Ilunga also signed for one of the most bizarre events in any world cup when he casually kicked away the ball during a free kick for Brazil.

Mar 26, 2018
People do watch women's football. It might be more popular than men's football in the US (probably because the US women's team is so much more successful than the men's). And kal's comment was not crying sexism for the sake of it. She was pointing out, rightly, that the quiz originally asked for countries that have played in the World Cup. The Women's World Cup satisfies that criteria. It's saying "name all the presidents" without specifying that you're looking only for US presidents. Under that condition, the president of any country is a correct answer. If the quiz wants only men's teams, it should say so. It's not a question of upending social expectations. It's a question of putting precise and accurate instructions at the top of the quiz. And look, the Quizmaster added the note to clarify that it's only the men's team. Yet the site still works and society is still standing. Small miracles.

A: There are football/soccer World Cups both for men and women, so you can at least add a note if the quiz is only about the male version.

I would really appreciate it if the standard caveat text of "Contains countries that no longer exist" was added. When I was missing 5 I scrolled up specifically to look for it. Since it wasn't there, I assumed that answers like East Germany or Yugoslavia weren't the right things to guess.

I think that you should make Serbia (& Montenegro) and Yugoslavia as one. Both the FIFA and the uefa consider Serbia the successor of Yugoslavia. And if you check the facts for the Serbia team, they also take the Yugoslav results into account. It's the same situation as with Czech/Czechoslovakia, Russia/USSR and Germany/west Germany when considering football

Does India just not have any interest in soccer? One would think that, by sheer force of population numbers, it would have had a few major talents to carry it through to the tournament at least once or twice. The Asian field is not as competitive as others are. Very interesting.

India is, as I write this, the biggest country (both by size and population) to never have competed in the final stage of a FIFA World Cup. Interestingly enough, India qualified for the 1950 Cup in Brazil but withdrew, leaving the group C with only three teams. Indian players were used to play barefoot as they did in the Olympics two years prior. But FIFA banned barefoot play for the 1950's WC so legend has it that's the reason why India pulled out. However, financial reasons and travel costs might have played a bigger role in the team's decision...

South Korea best participation was fourth place in 2002 WC. Never been third place. Serbia has never passed the group phase, so it's very misleading to place their best participation as round 2.

Both FIFA and UEFA consider Serbia to be the direct and sole successor of the Yugoslavia team. The same applies to Russia in the case of the USSR and the Czech Republic in the case of Czechoslovakia.
