It would be a shame if one of the world's greatest players in Gareth Bale never manages to play in the World Cup IMO :S

France never qualified for a World Cup when Cantona was playing, I don't think.
Neither did Best with Northern Ireland.

Kinda makes me wonder how well those teams would've done in the times Cantona and Best were playing.
