The Slovenian team that beat Russia couldn't make it out of the EASY group.

Belgium finished 4th in their qualifying group.
Using one of results doesn't really make a good comparison.

Put Switzerland up against Honduras now-days, they'd beat them. Back then Shaqiri and Xhaka weren't as good as they are now and they now add a bigger attacking presence. Back then they only had Eren Derdiyok and he wasn't renowned for doing that well.

Denmark have improved since then as well, they showed they could cope in a group with Germany, Portugal and Netherlands.

Also. A 40 team World Cup just won't work. Although I do have to question on why you think South America deserves 6.5 spots when there's only 9 teams. That's just wrong.
