    Oh, that's a Swedish Flag... I thought it was a FInish flag for a second. But a Finish Flag looks like this:

    If you get this you are finished but not necessarily Finish

    Don't understand soccer. There are 32 teams.

    Let's look at their rankings:
    Sweden is 24th and in.
    America is 25th and out.
    Serbia is 34th and in.
    Australia is 36th and in. Australia is like a third world country when it comes to soccer.
    IR Iran is 37th and in.
    Morocco is 41st and in. Morocco is a third world country.
    Egypt is 45th and in... Ditto.
    Nigeria is 48th and in.
    Panama is ranked 55th and they are in.
    Korea is ranked 57th and in. I thought you were supposed to discriminate against Asians (Harvard does).
    Japan is 61st. Ditto....
    Saudi Arabia is 67th and in..
    Russia is 70th and they are in.

    Russia is the lousiest team to make the tournament. They are the tournament hosts. Coincidence? I think not.

    The only team ranked 25-32 that made it in is Senegal. The Netherlands (17) is missing. Italy (19) is missing. Whales (18) is missing (I did not know Whales played soccer). Chile (9) isn't playing.

    Would cheer for the best men to win but not sure they are playing.

    Thread is about FOOTBALL!

    I think the term soccer came about due to the need for countries like the United States needing to differentiate between their sports such as American Football, which personally I believe should be called Hand Egg!

    Seriously soccer or football I couldn't care less what term is used. However it made me laugh once to hear some of the local Americans from the airbase talking about football in the pub calling it soccer. In a pub full of football fans while a game was on, they were very brave!!!!

    And too be fair USA have a fairly decent team from what I have seen in the past.

    I did notice when I was over there last year, soocer seems to be becoming more popular? Several of what I presume were high schools had football (soccer) pitches set up and there seemed to be quite a bit of advertisement about for soccer.

    Doesn't matter what World ranking you are.

    Every country gets a chance to qualify in which they play a set number of games to do so.

    Russia automatically qualified as they are hosting the tournament.

    USA, Mexico and Canada will automatically qualify in 2026 as they will be hosts after the next World Cup.

    The other teams you mention did not qualify.
