Omagarsh. Can people quit with the "why do we have to play minnows" (eg Cuba) stuff like it is our personal burden? In UEFA odds are you get Gibraltar or Faroe in your qualifying group. In Africa someone gets Swatini, South Sudan, and the Seychelles. In Asia you might play Guam or Bhutan. Don't even get me started on Oceania. The only reason CONMEBOL looks like it does is geographical anomaly and grandfathering. I did a report on the Guyanas when I was a kid. They are in equatorial South America. TnT are less than 10 miles off Venezuela's coast. We just played 2 South American teams. In Concacaf. Ditto Suriname. At some point when this was all being decided, the Spanish heritage teams didn't want in with the Caribbean French/English territories. So they got punted to Concacaf. Count your blessings we don't have to endure CONMEBOL carnage. Pure arrogance coming from a team that finished behind Honduras and Panama last time. You are not a special snowflake. Be glad qualifying is not unrelenting harshness because it would not always favor us. At the end of about every Concacaf process it winnows down to good teams eg Hex, LoN semis, GC knockouts. What we have is fine, and last year should have dispelled the illusion that you are who you schedule, or lining up Brazil Colombia England etc. should have already made us awesome. You still have to do your own hard work of development, selection, coaching, and playing the games. Focus on us for a change. When we are beating everyone including CR and Mexico 3-0 even away, we can start up with the "too good for Cuba" stuff again.
