At the same time, those countries are getting most of their quality competition again friendlies and not games that matter. You're not learning a whole lot about your team when you play so many games against the CONCACAF equivalents of Luxembourg and the Faroe Islands.
Well, if the world cup was set with the best countries in the world, it would basically be the European cup with a couple of teams from south america and maybe 1 or 2 from asia, possibly 1 from africa. There would be no teams from North/Middle america.
