...by playing crappy teams in the EURO qualifiers. The ELO ratings are much better, IMO. Although Brazil is a bit high.

I think you missed the point... Belgium only has about 11 million people in the entire country. Atlanta itself has 9 million or so people. Whether Belgium is 1st by FIFA or 11th by your ELO, it is still quite the feat and something to take notice of.

This is somewhat simple to me. Belguim has really one sport, like most of the world. Granted countries like Russia and Canada have hockey, but America is absolutely flooded with sports and to me, that seems the biggest thing holding us back.
