Of course its going to bull and annoying but was it that much more fun to play against Belgium, and will it be that more fun to play vs Poland? Sure, maybe a tiny bit more exciting but surely a lot of people will think its just dull and annoying with the breaks pretty much regardless of opposition.
Countries with 50+ million people, with some exceptions, are generally going to qualify to 9 out of 10 championships, realistically speaking the only time the qualifiers gets really exciting for you is when something goes terribly wrong.
Yes, it's predictable. Yes, the top nations are likely to qualify anyway. Fewer breaks/qualifiers is what I'm advocating.
