If they qualified from Asia they would have been in World Cup 2010.
Why the hell are they apart of UEFA? What is the benefit? Only 13
tightly contested spots out of 32. Asia has 5 spots really. No way
were Russia/Turkey going to lose New Zealand.

Can you imagine both the EURO 2008 semi-finalists unable to qualify
for world cup 2010 out of AFC?
