Did Fifa ever give a reason why the Oceania team does not play the Asia team and the Americas do not play each other? It makes more sense for several reasons, but mainly financially with less travel mileage. Also the players don't have to get as tired from major traveling. Anyone that travels as far as these teams will knows what jet lag that is. It cannot be good for the games either. I am beginning to wonder if they just did not want both the North American and South American teams to win. I don't see any other reason for it and it appears to be an agenda. I am from the United States so this doesn't hurt me, but I am also for a "world cup" so I would rather have them just given Oceania a bid and took away the half points from two of three of the other confederations.
