The draw has been made for the men’s Fifa World Cup 2026 and AFC Asian Cup 2027 qualifiers, and for the women’s and men’s group stages of this year’s Asian Games in Hangzhou, China. The Asian Games will take place from September 23 to October 8. Group A: China, Uzbekistan and Mongolia. Group B: Taiwan, Thailand and India. Group C: North Korea, Singapore and Cambodia. Group D: Japan, Vietnam, Nepal and Bangladesh. Group E: South Korea, Hong Kong, Philippines and Myanmar. Grp E is the Group of Death with 2 WC participants I believe this tournament will be held outside the FIFA calendar so teams like the Philippines who have pros in Europe will be handicapped if they cannot get their pro players released by their respective clubs. This tournament because of it's timing can also serve as a good preparation for the Olympic qualifiers 2nd round which starts later in October.
