2014 FIFA World Cup seeding for UEFA teams (26 March 2010)

The preliminary draw for the 2010 FIFA World Cup took place on November 25th, 2007 and used the November 2007 FIFA ranking.

Assumptions:

- UEFA will again have 13 spots
- UEFA will again use the system with 9 groups
- FIFA will use the FIFA ranking to seed the teams
- FIFA will hold the draw in November 2011

The November 2011 FIFA ranking will include matches played between November 2007 and November 2011. We already have the "0.2" and "0.3" parts (matches played between November 2007 and November 2009) - that's basically 25% of the final ranking and a bit of the "0.5" part (matches played between November 2009 and November 2010). A lot can and will change before November 2011 as there are many matches to be played involving European teams: 2010 FIFA World Cup, EURO 2012 qualifiers and plenty of friendlies.

UEFA will only use the national team coefficient for the European Championships draws (qualifying and final tournament).

This is the November 2011 ranking (for UEFA only) using matches played up to and including March 26th, 2009 and matches scheduled up to November 2010 (only those on fifa.com). I've also added the EURO 2012 fixtures from UEFA.com.

The "0.5" part is computed this way: points gained / (number of matches played + scheduled).

England and Denmark replace France and Slovenia in the first pot.
Turkey and Sweden replace Israel and the Republic of Ireland in the second pot.
Poland and Austria replace Montenegro and Romania in the third pot.
Belarus and Albania replace Belgium and Macedonia in the fourth pot.
Moldova replace Faroe Islands in the fifth pot.
