So here are the countries who have qualified for New Zealand 2015 so far:
Host Nation:
New Zealand

OFC:
Fiji

Uhm, it's Fiji.

AFC:
1. Myanmar
2. North Korea
3. Qatar
4. Uzbekistan

At first glance you would say: not very strong AFC contingent of teams. Both Qatar and North Korea look pretty decent. But as a whole not very strong. No Japan, No Australia, no South Korea.

UEFA:
1. Germany
2. Austria
3. Serbia
4. Portugal
5. Hungary
6. Ukraine

No Spain, no Itlay, no England, and no France. Germany, Portugal, and Austria all have strong teams, but as a whole I wouldn't consider this a strong UEFA contingent.

Just waiting on the CONCACAF, CAF, and CONMEBOL qualifiers.

Its funny I was just looking at this too. Africa is down to their final 8 for qualifying an it is mostly the usual heavy hitters (Ghana, Ivory Coast, South Africa, Nigeria) so CAF and CONMEBOL will send strong contingents but other than Germany USA will likely be favored against any of the other 5 euro teams and the 7 ofc/afc teams. If they dont qualify they will miss a huge oppotunity to show the world where USA is going


With Jesse Marsch and David Wagner at the helms of teams in the top flight, YA will cover their exploits this season.
