Australia in Asia Football Federation?Whats your view on this

December 9, 2006 9:17pm CST
THE Arab backlash against Australia's inclusion in the Asian Football Confederation has continued at the Asian Games in Doha, Qatar overnight. The head of Kuwait's Olympic committee said Australia's membership should be revoked before qualifying starts for the 2010 World Cup, or it will "kill Asian soccer" Sheik Talah al-Fahd Al Sabah, president of the West Asian Games committee, echoed earlier comments by his brother, Sheikh Ahmad al-Fahad al-Sabah, the Olympic Council of Asia president. "We are against Australia joining the Asian continent, even in soccer," said Sheik Talal. "This is the biggest mistake made against Asian soccer. This will kill the ambitions of Asian soccer." Australia was granted membership of the Asian Football Confederation this year after frustrating attempts at getting a direct route to the World Cup through Oceania. id like to see what your views are ,as Australia used to be in South American group and i feel should be allowed in this division
