Why is Canada so awful at soccer? We're virtually the only developed country with a population over 10 million that sucks, badly. Must be all the expats playing for England
By the way, Norway totally got -robbed- of even a chance to compete in the WC thanks to idiotic UEFA grouping by FIFA. Instead cheaters such as France made the splash. Pure favoritism.
As for the argument that South Korean emergence in hockey would influence the other Asian nations...China is still light years behind South Korea and Japan at football/soccer.
I would love to see competitive hockey nations expand to 16 and have world cups revolve around the top 16 nations, hence my support of further development of international hockey. It's a great game that doesn't need to be restricted to North America and a few northern European countries.
