Well its done on a continent basis and neither are in the same one. You could of course just admit you made a mistake and we can all move on

Egypt is on the African continent, Saudi Arabia is in Asia, yet there is talk of a bridge linking the two Countries at the Straits of Titan in the Red Sea. You are basically saying that the WC could be held in Egypt one year and Saudi Arabia 4 years later, hypothetically speaking. After all they are in two different continents, right?

A number of Russian (Europe) venues this year are further east than Qatar (Asia) venue for 2022 - Ekaterinburg is as far east as Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Yes, because they are in two different continents as far as football is concerned. Saudi Arabia play in the AFC and Egypt play in the CAF.

Would it blow your mind if I told you Australia played in the Asian (AFC) confederation?

They are also in two different continents as far as geography is concerned.

FDR was a special guy at a special time in American history. He got rid of Prohibition, the stupidest law in history and declared war on Japan about 8 years later. Can't see Trump getting that important or significant, only in his own mind.lol

Well, seeing as Australia is a continent in itself, where else could it get regular international games, Antartica?

Erm, perhaps as part of the OFC along with New Zealand et al, which it was a member of until as recently as 2006?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oceani..._Confederation

"In 2006, the OFC's largest and most successful nation, Australia, left to join the Asian Football Confederation, leaving New Zealand as the largest federation within the OFC."

I suggest you brush up on the basics before making yourself look any more foolish.
