In 2005, in the first CWC (of the current format), Saprissa represented CONCACAF; beating OFC's representative, falling to Liverpool, but then beating AFC's representative to win 3rd place. Since then, no CONCACAF representative has been able to match this (neither win TWO games in a single tournament or WIN a medal) Since 2006 only Mexican clubs have qualified to the CWC and none of them have managed to win a medal yet. In the meantime, Asia has won 4 medals (all bronze), and Africa has won 1 bronze and also is the only other continent besides Europe/South America to have a team play in the championship (and win silver). Is CONCACAF getting weaker? Or are the other confederations (Africa and Asia) getting stronger? Why do we keep having such a consistently poor performance in this tournament?
