With so many national teams in Europe, it is amazing to me that UEFA is not having "much difficulty" getting these sort of qualification schemes for World Cups, as an example.

Makes a change for us to have a relatively straight-forward group. It always seems to be Spain or Italy that gets them. I wouldn't say Italy's group was particularly taxing, would you?
