The Road to Tokyo

Recommended Posts

The Road to Tokyo.

How many international friendlies will the CSA arrange for the CWNT over the course of the next six months?

Women's qualification

In addition to host nation Japan, 11 women's national teams will qualify from six separate continental confederations.

For the first time, as per an agreement between the four British football associations (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales), Great Britain attempted to qualify for the Olympics through England's performance in the World Cup (a procedure already successfully employed by Team GB in field hockey and rugby sevens). Scotland also qualified for the World Cup but, under the agreement whereby the highest ranked home nation is nominated to compete for the purposes of Olympic qualification, their performance will not be taken into account.

Only Robert would copy-paste chunks of wikipedia page articles into his posts.

We still don't know when or where the CONCACAF qualifying tournament will be.

But the wikipedia article does say when the CONCACAF qualifying tournament will be played: February 2020.

It just doesn't say where. Maybe the CSA should make a bid for it if it hasn't been decided already? That would be a great opportunity to get some quality matches in Canada, and at the same time it would give Christine Sinclair a chance to set the international goal-scoring record on home soil, in front of a large Canadian crowd. It's also a good opportunity for Mt. Pete to finally earn one of his pay-cheques!

CONCACAF consistancy?

Will Mt. Vic design a format for the CONCACAF Women's 2020 Olympic qualifying tournament that is consistent with what he created for the CONCACAF Men's 2022 World Cup qualifying tournament? In other words, will he use the FIFA/Coca-Cola rankings to seed the top six countries into the final women's Olympic qualifying tournament, just like he did for the men's World Cup, or is he going to screw Canada for a second time? Whatever he does, he better hurry up and decide because the CONCACAF Women's 2020 Olympic qualifying tournament is slated to start this October, and the July 12, 2019 FIFA/Coca-Cola rankings have been out for two weeks already. By the way, why is Mt. Vic always so slow? Other confederations, like UEFA, already know which countries they are going to send to Tokyo.

The top two teams in the region are the USA and Canada.  Everyone else is a fair ways back, so I don't see how the seeding for the tournament is going to change the outcome much.  It will likely come down to Canada vs Mexico for the second spot, no matter how you lay things out at the beginning.  How is it possible to "screw" us in the seeding?  If we can't beat the minnows, we have no business going to the Olympics.

Boring, I want a ton of conspiracies in CONCACAF women'S soccer where Canada has to play the US in a best of 3. The winner goes to the Olympics, the loser faces the best of the rest.

In your reply above, substitute the USA and Canada, with Mexico and the United States in the men's qualifying format. Everyone else is a fair ways back, so I don't see how the seeding for the tournament is going to change the outcome much.  It will likely come down to the United States and Costa Rica for the second spot, no matter how you lay things out at the beginning.  How is it possible to "screw" us in the seeding?  If we can't beat the minnows, we have no business going to the World Cup.

So answer me, why do we have to play the minnows, while others don't? Is that fair? We have to run the risk of getting beat by the minnows, while Mt. Vic's favourites don't. Like why are Canada and 28 other countries in CONCACAF being treated like second-class members by Mt. Vic?

I say this with the greatest respect, but if you can't see that your getting f_cked up the _ss by Mt. Vic then there's something seriously wrong with your central nervous system!

I hate the way the Europeans qualify their teams early for the Olympics.  How do the Germans or the French feel about not going?  The French got knocked out of the Olympics by the Americans.  How is that fair?  At least the CONCACAAF teams get to decide who goes to the Olympics amongst themselves.

As far as substituting the women and men goes, it's not the same situtation.  Our women's team is favoured, our men's team is one of the minnows that the good teams have to beat.  Of course it matters where you are seeded as a minnow, not so much as one of the expected winners.

The only " conspiracy" I see : The "Americanization" of Concacaf. The most of the tournaments are  held in the US. Take a look to the last Men Pre-Olympic tournaments : always in the USA. The women and men U-17, U-20 Tournaments in Bradenton FL. Not counting the Gold Cups. 

Probably the Women Pre-Olympic Tournament will  also be there. Undoubtedly is gives a great advantage to the US teams

I agree 100% with the "Americanization of CONCACAF" conspiracy. However, given the fact that the Americans hosted the last CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament in 2016,  and the fact that Mt. Vic is still a pseudo Canadian of sorts, and that if he set his mind to it, Mt. Vic could argue that it is now Canada's turn to host the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament in 2020.
