The schedule for the qualifying round will be announced on the 27th November at a draw ceremony in Taipei, Taiwan. Six teams: Guam, Hong Kong, Macao, Mongolia, North Korea, and hosts Taiwan will battle it out for one place in the finals to be played in South Korea. China, Japan & South Korea qualify automatically for the final tournament. I can't see anyone stopping North Korea winning this. I think the only reason Hong Kong qualified the last time is because North Korea didn't take part. Anyone have any other predictions?
