Portugal failed to advance the preliminary phase for the 3rd time; Morocco lost all five matches in the WC so far. I believe they should sit out the Season 4.

If Morocco had 5 matches, they must have won some? I'm sure Portugal is safe, but perhaps not pot 1.

Nah, because Pegase lost to both since groups were smaller then.

Portugal has 2-5 record, while Argentina has 1-6 for instance, very poor as well.

Yeah, and I guess you've seen football World Cup all time list, which ranks countries based on points collected. If I were to make a list here, then Spain tops right now with 12-3 record (and still in contention). ^_^

Mostly managers tend to choose obscure choices for bigger countries which might be divisive among watchers and tend to end up last in matches. So performing bad in previous seasons should not be taken into account for the next season. Since we follow football WC as reference for most part, we should not eliminate/award any country based on previous season's records. Every season should start afresh. Awarding QF entering managers first preference itself is enough
