The World’s Worst Soccer Teams

The World’s Worst Soccer Teams

Introduction The Island is the second worst soccer team in the world today. The national squad, once a powerful team on the continent of Asia, has never qualified for the FIFA World Cup. Throughout the 1950s, Taiwan called special attention when the men’s soccer team earned twice the Asian title. However, it was the last time Taiwan was seen in the podium.

Country Profile: Taiwan

Taiwan also known as Chinese Taipei covers a land area of 13,900 square miles. More than 23 million people live in the Island. The capital and largest city of the Island is Taipei. Politically, Taiwan is a democratic state since 2000. The United Nations does not recognize Taiwan. The country is only recognized by 23 countries in the world: Belize (Central America),Burkina Faso (Africa), Dominican Republic (Caribbean), El Salvador (Central America), Gambia (West Africa), Guatemala (Central America), Haiti (Caribbean), Holy See (Europe), Honduras (Central America), Kiribati (South Pacific), Marshall Islands (Oceania), Nauru (South Pacific), Nicaragua (Central America), Palau (Oceania), Panama (Central America), Paraguay (South America), Saint Kitts Nevis (Caribbean), Saint Lucia (Caribbean), Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (Caribbean), Sao Tome and Principe (Africa), Solomon Islands (South Pacific), Swaziland (Southern Africa), and Tuvalu (South Pacific). Economically, it is one of Asia’s most industrialized countries, together with Singapore, South Korea, Malaysia and Japan.

Rise and Fall of the Taiwanese Soccer

In its first appearance at an important international event, the national team won the gold medal in the Asian Games in Manila, the capital city of the Philippines, in 1954. Chinese Taipei arrived as the unknown to experts of the Asian Games. However, they were the big surprise. At the onset, the tournament was dominated by Taiwan. In the first round, they picked up two wins. It defeated South Vietnam (3 2) and the Philippines (4 0). Then, it beat Indonesia 4 2 in the semi finals. Subsequently, Chinese Taipei defeated South Korea 5 2, to earn first place in the Asian Games. Curiously SK went to Manila as favorites to win the gold medal.

Four years later, the national squad earned the regional title, at the expense South Korea (silver medal) and Indonesia (bronze medal). At the 1958 Tokyo Games, the men’s soccer team that was perhaps the best Taiwan team became the first squad to successfully defend a men’s Asian title. Group A was dominated by Taiwan. On May 24, 1958, Chinese Taipei routed Malaysia 2 1. Two days later, they beat Pakistan 3 1. In the next round, the national squad defeated Israel (2 0) and then routed Indonesia (1 0). In the 1958 men’s final, Chinese Taipei beat South Korea 3 2. By 1956, Korea had won the Asian Cup. For political reasons, however, the Island could not defend its Asian title in the Games in Jakarta, Indonesia, in the early 1960s.

But the so called “golden age” of Taiwanese football ended in the 1960s. Between October 14 and October 23, 1960, the Island placed third at the Asian Cup, behind South Korea (winner) and Israel (runner up). During that event, they defeated the Philippines (7 4), Hong Kong (7 4) and South Vietnam (2 0). By the late 1960s, Chinese Taipei finished fourth in the Asian Cup in Iran. In the first round, it defeated the Philippines (9 0), Indonesia (3 2), and South Korea (1 0) and tied with Japan (2 2). The country advance but was quickly put out by Iran (0 4), and Israel (1 4) in the semi finals.

Over the next decades, the results were quite poor. Unlike Japan, South Korea, China and Korea DPR, Taiwan where there are more than 500 soccer stadiums has not qualified for the FIFA World Cup. By 2006, the national team lost to Kuwait 10 0. In 2010 Chinese Taipei, a member of the FIFA since the 1950s, is ranked 162nd on the Planet, behind Sierra Leone (one of the world’s poorest nations), Nicaragua ( a baseball loving nation), Maldives (one of the world’s smallest countries), the Democratic Republic of the Congo (a war torn country in Africa), and Iraq (a republic in crisis for decades).

FIFA finds shortcomings in World Cup bids ahead of vote

FIFA finds shortcomings in World Cup bids ahead of vote

(CNN) FIFA has cast doubts on the hopes of several countries bidding to host the 2018 and 2022 World Cup tournaments in a technical evaluation report released by soccer’s governing body on Wednesday.

Russia, seeking to host football’s premier event for the first time in 2018, was criticized for its limited transport options which may cause problems due to “the country’s vastness and remoteness'” the report said.

Its information and communications technology needs to be upgraded, while 13 of its proposed 16 stadiums will be started from scratch and its accommodation plan suggests “a dependence on construction and modernization in the hotel sector.”

Russia received a “low risk” legal rating, as did its main European rivals England and Spain Portugal, but the Belgium Netherlands joint bid was marked “medium risk”.

England, the 1966 host, received a mainly favorable evaluation but it failed to meet FIFA’s requirements for venue specific training sites and accommodation.

The Spain Portugal bid also fell short in required contracted venue specific training sites, but it has an advantage over England in that there are no government restrictions on media rights.

The Belgium Netherlands bid fell short in team facility and accommodation requirements, and did not supply the necessary government guarantees to satisfy FIFA’s protection program needs.

Of the 2022 candidates, Qatar’s bid was highlighted as having the most shortfalls mainly due to the small size of the country, its excessively hot climate during the tournament months of June July, and the need to start most construction from scratch.

“The fact that 10 out of the 12 stadiums are located within a 25 30 kilometer radius could represent an operational and logistical challenge,” the report said.

“Any delay in the completion of the transport projects could impact FIFA’s tournament operations. Moreover, it appears to be difficult to test a transport concept prior to the event under conditions comparable to the World Cup.

“The fact that the competition is planned in June July, the two hottest months of the year in this region, has to be considered as a potential health risk for players, officials, the FIFA family and spectators, and requires precautions to be taken.”

The Qatar bid was praised for a novel aspect to its stadium plans, which would see modular sections used to build 22 grounds around the world in developing countries.

Its time zone difference of three hours from Europe means it rated higher in terms of television revenue an area where rivals Australia, South Korea and Japan fell down.

Australia’s geographical size was also highlighted as a potential problem, while it failed to meet FIFA’s accommodation requirements, but it was rated a low legal risk.

The United States’ size was not deemed to be problematic given the competitiveness of its air industry, but the report noted temporary transport would have to be provided to and from most of the proposed stadiums. bid had the highest projected tickets sold of almost five million, and the report said “TV ratings and media rights in the Americas are likely to be higher.”

Japan and South Korea are seeking to stage the event for the second time, having been co hosts in 2002.

Japan’s bid focused on innovative high tech aspects, and was praised for its facilities and transport, though its government did not provide the required guarantees and it was rated a medium legal risk.

South Korea, which hopes to stage some games in the North, met most requirements but received one black mark in that “the majority of FIFA’s constituent target groups would be accommodated in two or three star quality standard rooms.”

It was given a low legal risk rating, but FIFA said its broadcasting law “adversely affects the free and unrestricted exploitation of media rights” and therefore needs to be suspended.

FIFA’s executive committee members, who have been lobbied by all the candidates and visited their facilities, will vote to decide the hosts for both tournaments on December 2.

Other factors apart from the technical requirements have historically played a part in awarding hosting rights.

Meanwhile, FIFA’s ethics committee will announce on Thursday the fate of the two executive committee members accused of offering to sell their World Cup votes, the UK Press Association reported on Wednesday.

Nigeria’s Amos Adamu and Oceania president Reynald Temarii were last month provisionally suspended along with four other FIFA officials following an undercover investigation by British newspaper the Sunday Times.
