Uruguay is thusly famous for it's unique concept of sportsmanship and fairness, and also how well they handle being losers.
Rodney Sensible: Hold on there Joe, Australia will be the only country top of a zone to actually have to play a play-off to secure thier place. Uruguay finished fifth in their zone so we'd have to play them, and God said they deserve to go to the world cup and it's unfair for them, so I guess you're not allowed to compete.
Joe Dingbat: Oh, of course. How selfish of me.
