OFC is weaker than CONCACAF though I have to agree we are pretty weak when compared to CONMEBOL and UEFA. Copa America SHOULD be ALL of the Americas which can only benefit the hemisphere specially North America, and I think the main reason why CONCACAF football doesn´t grow is because the lack of sufficient games against top level teams, consistent long projects, in the US soccer is growing and the more interest that grows the better we will get, Canada, Honduras, Costa Rica, Guatemala have their ups and downs but getting there

Ok chivasfan80 before you start crowning Mexico Champions...Here is something you might want to know about Concacaf this tourney so far. 1 win 3 losses...4 goals for 10 against. That's how good your Confederation is...:)
