    Only group winner will guarantee a spot in the third(final) round. Runner-up does not get an automatic spot, only top 4 goes into third round.

    I expect no teams in pot 3,4,5 to make it to third round. Which will Make the final round the toughest qualification ever in asia.

    Some of those minnow pot 4/5 countries are in for a bad time with potential 2nd place teams probably duking it out for goal difference...

    I don't think so. Because I feel no team in pot three will challenge any teams in pot 2 for runner up finish. Nevermind teams in pot four and five. Teams in pot three aren't good enough to hang around for eight games. They may hang in there for couple of games. But when dust settles, I believe there won't any Cinderella teams making it to the third round. I don't feel teams like Norks, or Palestine who both made the asian cup 2015 tourney by winning afc challenge cup to have any chance.

    There's going to be clear group winners and runner-ups in the second round. Winner from pot one and runner-up from pot two.


    Edit: I give one team pot three a chance. Thailand.

    Man, I was really hoping that we'd be in Group F but oh well bring on Lebanon and Kuwait again. Although, Iran, Japan and Australia have a relatively easy group, I am just glad that we did not end up with the Norks again.

    Funny thing is that this is the second consecutive FIFA WCQ's where we meet Lebanon and Kuwait again. We've faced Lebanon at the '94, '06, '14 WCQ's, while both Lebanon and Kuwait in '06 and '14 WCQ's.

    Relatively speaking yeah, however that all depends on how well we play because Laos and Myanmar is a piece of cake, but Lebanon and Kuwait can still pull off an upset. I mean even Theo Bücker was frustrated by the way we played against them and especially with CKH's tactics in the return leg Away game where we drew them 1-1, all thanks to Kim Chi-Woo for saving our ass with his freekick equalizer in the dying minutes.
