If we did ever qualify under their nebulous "criteria/formula" they would likely just change it so we wouldn't.
Sepp Blatter doesn't like us. The US is not a traditional soccer power he has to listen to and we're not a poor country he can bribe. Our only hope is that UEFA gets fed up with his shenanigans and threatens to bolt FIFA or Platini gets enough support to push him out. He's bought so many countries in the Caribbean, Asia, and Africa and likes to use the US as his whipping boy.
