    Like a europa league of the world.
    Those tiny teams who never qualify for the WC ought to have a secondary tournament. Been looking at the tables and there're ones like Kosovo, Moldova, Gibraltar with like.. 1 point from 10 games. Whats the point? Seems like domestic clubs are rewarded for failure but national sides are just forgotten about.

    It’d be nice to see them able to play some attacking football & try to win games for a change rather than just not been embarrasssed

    We wouldn't get it. We're like the Olympiakos of international football.

    I've always thought there should be a preliminary round before the qualifiers for these teams. There is in other confederations.

    There are 55 UEFA members, give the top 9 teams a bye, then draw the 46 others against each other. 23 winners plus the other 9 = 32, and then you can just have a straight knockout. Chance for some giant killers and you save two years of pointless qualifiers.
