  • Fifa should go and sleep. The time has come for their system of things to be reviewed. 5 out 9 south american countries will go to world cup while 5 out of 52 african countries go to world cup. Almost half of the world cup participants are from europe, these are all biases and need to be addressed. With this their ranking system, I dont think we will be anywhere even if we win the world cup…..FIFA must address this problem
