Japan, South Korea and Iran Qualifies for 2006 World Cup

Congratulations to Iran, Japan and South Korea.

These are the first teams to qualify for the 2006 Fifa World Cup in Germany.

In the past, it has mostly been South American and European teams that have dominated the global soccer scene. With today's rumors of Korean's Park considering a move to Man U., is this a sign that Asian soccer is on the rise and that their very organized and strong team-player efforts are paying off? The soccer-fuss definitely sky-rocketed after the last world cup in Korea/Japan, and it was facinating to see how patriotic and deeply emotional the Korean fans were after their victories against Italy and Spain. I certainly would love to see any of the newly qualified teams from Asia win their first World Cup.

Is there a chance Japan, Iran or South Korea could win then next world cup, or is it just wishful thinking?
