    World Cup Champion gets an automatic spot. They also won the Copa America, which also gets a spot, so that had to be filled. Since argentina came in second they are in.
    That's my guess.

    last cup there were two too, Colombia(Copa América Champs) and Brazil (World Champs), but yes Argentina goes in place of the champ, since they are already in it.

    Do you support Argentina? I'd rather see them win than Brazil.

    I'm sorry to break it to you guys, but mexico is going to win the confederations cup or at least be the runner up. This tournaments usually turn to the hosts, specially if they are host and the runner ups for the last cup which is Germany.

    so every team that mexico has lost to is better than them-be realistic jus cause mexico won that one game it doesnt mean they are better than argentina, on top of that, argentina clearly outplayed mexico in that game and mexico was lucky argentina couldn't capitalize. Even though mexico won, they were not and ARE NOT the better team..sorry ILM :rolleyes:

    Look it is not my intention to start a fight in this forum over who is better Argentina or Mexico. is true, we need consistance in order to prove who's better. However, you can't just say that Argentina is better than Mexico right away, I think both teams teams are strong enough to play a game, and not know who the winner is until the ball stops.

    Look at the past 2 games. Mexico won in 2004 and Argentina in 2003 both wins by 1 goal. Of course Argentina leads the all time record, but this last 2 are the ones that count, because its a different team than before.

    the way FIFA has set up the last stages of the WR

    normally teams from the same confederation eliminate each other, so let mexico worry about the new power house of the area: the all mighty USA ;)

    before we talk finalist!

    I'm not sure about that. it could have been South Korea the one we had faced in WC2002.

    But we'll see in Next world cup, you can be certain of one thing, another WC2002 epidose like that will not occur in 2006

    The same could be said about the US but you refuse to accept it.
