With this group C they gave a chances to small teams to get to finals, about african teams Egypt was eliminated in qualification from Iran, I don't remember other teams from Africa play in World League, also same for Australia.
Why would anyone want a 'small team' instead of USA, Poland, Cuba, Serbia, Bulgaria... (at least 2 of these won't go - I'm counting on Brazil to make it).. I hope it's Netherlands, they used to be strong, but suck ass in last years.
As for Egypt, they were given a WC, but decided not to play, so Portugal (!?) got their place. But Tunisia and Australia were overlooked, so I concluded teams from Oceania and Africa aren't playing (only if they are given a WC), but it's a world league, they are parts of the world, it's nonsense to me.
