i thought it was
who cares about the other 2
another pointless thread. way to go, toot.
He doesn't know. Haven't you learned?
Hey Ringo, your sig was written by John.
duh. and might I add .... so?
looks good to me. I can't believe USA and Mexico are better than the 3rd best South American team but alas it is indeed true. Sorry state of affairs going on right now in South American football.
Gee didn't mean to offend you, turn me on dead man...
And here are the top 10 countries that have the best basketball teams:

Re: Re: Re: Top 10- Countries that have the best Soccer Teams..
me neither. condor, you're a wise man,
I think Argentinian guy had to include TURKEY instead of Russia because we beat them in Indianapolis and we played the final in 2001 European basketball championship.

When it comes to best teams Mexico is obvious because of the amount of money the league offers. Some of the best players from the continent play in Mexico and therefore the teams are good. also, the money that is available is pretty well distributed, so not only one or two teams are rich while the rest are poor.
Whoever puts the US on this list is nuts. The average MLS and USL teams can't touch the average south american squad. When it comes to the best teams per country, I have a hard time believing that the best MLS teams are better than from Ururugay, Chile, Colombia etc...especially when you consider the unbelievable talent coming out of these teams.
This is the current ranking of nations' international teams.
I dont get the point of this thread; seems there are like 3 others just like it but with a different name.
Outside of the top four CONMEBOL leagues(Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, and Chile) there isn´t a lot of parity, and most clubs make their money selling their best players to bigger clubs, or abroad. There isn´t an ¨average¨ club in Uruguay, for example; just two big clubs (Peñarol and Nacional,) a club produces an enormous amount of talent but doesn´t hold on to it (Danubia,) and the rest which are mainly cannon fodder.
