Portugal are always a very effective dark horse, in fact they're very good.
Don't you find it odd how the USA can qualify but Holland nor Scotland who are WAY better can't. And the FA's ranking system is shite, how can USA be anywhere near England, it just isn't right for them to be so high up.
fifa will never change that... the oceania group is pretty pathetic! almost not even worth australia playing in it! especially when their greatest threat in the group is new zealand and where are they ranked!? <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">
i was disappointed that the aussies couldn't clinch the final spot! we've come so close so often! <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" /> it would have been really good for soccer in australia if they had qualified!
