This WC should've been the GOAT, but absolutely everything went wrong.

Just look at the teams:
>England, unironically with chances to win it.
>Italy, with a better team than in 2006, prime Del Piero, Totti, Maldini, Vieri...
>Spain, a great generation, Morata, Hierro, Raul, Puyol, Mendieta, Valerón...
>Portugal, with prime Figo, Pauleta, and Rui Costa.
>Argentina: Verón, Zanetti, Ayala, Samuel, Simeone, Crespo, Aimar...
>Netherlands: ...
>Brazil: GOAT Brazil.
>France: Even better (names) than in 1998.
>Germany: Based Ballack, Kahn and Klose.
>Sweden: Larsson, Ljungberg, young Ibra, Andersson.

And this was the main cause, those groups were awful. Plus Korea cheating.

The Korea refball was the most obvious one in football history, a true disgrace.

Well, it is a known fact, that FIFA refs are horrible. So, the logical question:

How do you reform FIFA's referee practices?

I don't like it because that was the tournament when the USA knocked mexico out from a world cup, and they keep bringing up that match until our days

Abandon FIFA, start a new Association.
Put video referees everywhere like in NBA. Eject all divers, call every foul and whine stop the timer when the game is stopped.

Probably the GOAT USA team aswell. We should have advanced and either cheated by Korea or got btfo by Brazil in the final.
>>
Argentina and France really brought it on themselves though. You could argue that the penalty on the England match was refball in Argentina's case, but the main thing is that the two most stacked and hyped NTs of that WC struggled a lot to score (France didn't even score at all)

The Korea - Italy referee was arrested for possession/smuggling heroin in United States in 2010.

'98 was pretty much the perfect WC

>Great host
>Great atmosphere
>Entertaining games and plenty of goals
>Legends having their swan song (M.Laudrup, Matthaus, Stoichkov, Hagi, Schmeichel, Bebeto, Baggio etc.)

With that goal we would have made it to the second round.

But staying up late and getting up at 4am to watch a game while wrapped in a blanket made it the comfiest wc for me

>you now remember Harte missing that penalty in normal time

I know one of our penalties was dodgy as fuck, but we nearly beat Spain.

Although seeing as how Spain's next game was against those cheating gooks, maybe losing when we did was a blessing in disguise.

idk man
against a shit opponent theyd habe thought they wouldnt have to cheat
backfired against turkey too

Put Americans (and maybe Canada/Australia) in charge of it. They're more or less impartial since they don't give a fuck about soccer.

God...

Although it makes sense Japs suck. They probably think the time always slows down when they have the ball and are about to kick it. Or they can jump in the air for a minute.
