    i just heard the news for myself.

    one thing to correct on your post is that S. Korea and Japan will play HOME game on Feb. 9 against a pot 4 team. 2nd game is away at a pot 2 team, 3rd at home against pot 3 team.

    That's cool that they have Pot 1 v Pot 2 on the last day. Should be some interesting last day clashes, assuming the top two haven't already sealed it by then. There's also the Pot 3 v Pot 4 match on the final day that could be decisive in determining the playoff spot. Too bad the UAE and Oman won't be there.
