2014 FIFA World Cup seeding for UEFA teams (8 September 2010)

The preliminary draw will take place in July or August 2011.

Assumptions:

- UEFA will again have 13 spots
- UEFA will again use the system with 9 groups
- FIFA will use the July 2011 FIFA ranking to seed the teams

The July 2011 FIFA ranking will include matches played between July 2007 and July 2011. We already 50% of the final ranking. Things can and will change before July 2011 as there are many matches to be played involving European teams: 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 July 2011 ranking (for UEFA only) using matches played up to and including September 7th, 2010 and matches scheduled up to July 2011 (only those on fifa.com).

The "1.0" part is computed this way: points gained / (number of matches played + scheduled).

Montenegro climb from 4th to 1st pot.
Slovakia climb from 3rd to 1st pot.
Lithuania climb from 4th to 2nd pot.
Belarus and Northern Ireland climb from 5th to 3rd pot, with Belgium going the other way.

Sweden climb from 3rd to 2nd pot.
Albania and Moldova climb from 5th to 4th pot.
Georgia climb from 6th to 5th pot, replacing Azerbaijan.

Russia and Portugal drop from 1st to 2nd pot.
Switzerland, France, Republic of Ireland and Czech Republic drop from 2nd to 3rd pot.
Romania, Latvia and Bulgaria drop from 3rd to 4th pot.
Finland, FYR Macedonia and Poland drop from 4th to 5th pot.
