    Group B is killer while Group A will be a cake walk for Australia.

    Australia won't have the benefit of having played in the Asian Games a few weeks earlier unlike many of the other Asian teams including the Philippines and Chinese Taipei from their group.

    The three group winners and the best ranked runner-up will advance to the Final Round.

    *assuming PRK actually play. It's been 4.5 yrs so far since thy last played so no guarantee there on reactivating.

    Yes, Group B is definitely poised to be made of just three teams. :coffee:

    By the way, if PRK keeps withdrawing for years and years to come, AFC will always be bound to insert them in the draws for its tournaments anyway? :cautious:

    They got a bye to the finals this time because, at the time of *that* draw, they were still 10th in the official FIFA rankings. But when preliminary qualifying was done, they were no longer ranked, and thus were the last seed instead of the first seed. I presume that, as long as they remain unranked, they'd have to go through preliminary AFC qualifying, at least as long as they keep entering (as many AFC countries opt to not enter qualifying campaigns to begin with).

    If the North Korea women's football team participates in the Asian Games in China a few weeks earlier where they were also drawn to Group C with Singapore and Cambodia, then most likely they will participate in the 2nd round of the Olympic qualifiers later in October.

    Just crossed my mind.... Based on what's happened down in AUS/NZL, that Canada/Jamaica playoff now looks a heck of a lot juicier than it did when it was first set.

    I wonder if we will see Canada doing a big re-set for their team with new players. This World Cup felt like the end of the line for players who have been been at the core of the program for a long time.

    In the end North Korea not only played but they won their group eliminating South Korea and Japan. They join Australia, Japan and Uzbekistan in the final round. They will be two home/away ties with (I believe) Australia playing Uzbekistan and Japan playing North Korea.

    China. ;)

    Of course you're aware and it's just a typo, since you then list Japan as one of the semifinalists.

    Pots seem very much locked atm, outside of Brazil trading possibly places with Canada not much movement between pots probably gonna happen.

    Next FIFA ranking gonna be published 15th March

    The draw for Olympic Games football tournament is 20th March.

    Next FIFA friendly window is in 1-9th April, so no impact on the draw.

    Is it known at which time it will happen and if it will be possible to follow it live?

    The CAF teams still in the running are
    Zambia (1372) v Morocco (1411)
    Nigeria (1627) v South Africa (1497)

    USA defeat to Mexico in the Gold Cup will impact their ranking, but not enough to send them to pot 2, unless they lose again in the QF

    Should it happen, it would simplify the draw, since the three Euro-team would be in the same pot and couldn't meet each other. :p

    Edit: also, the two CONCACAF teams would be in the same pot too!

    UEFA nations have written a letter to IOC that they want the squad size of 18 players to be increased.
