CONCACAF qualifying system news update

18 games to reach the 2014 World Cup, according to Diez.hn.

This time the info comes from Mr. Alfredo Hawit Banegas, member of CONCACAF's Executive Committee.

There's also this article in LaPrensa.hn, with the info provided by Mario Monterrosa, CONCACAF's deputy secretary.

The system

  1. Preliminary round (if needed) to trim the number of teams to 32.
  2. 8 groups of 4 teams. Top two in each group through to the next round.
  3. 4 groups of 4 teams. Top two in each group through to the next round.
  4. 2 groups of 4 teams. If CONCACAF will have 3.5 spots, the winners of the groups will qualify directly to the World Cup, while the second placed teams will play-off against each other first, then against a team from another confederation (CONMEBOL). If CONCACAF gets 4 spots as they hope, the top two teams in each group will qualify to the World Cup.

The system needs to be approved by FIFA's Executive Committee in September and I can't see why FIFA wouldn't approve it. Also according to Mr. Hawit, the allocation of places for the 2014 FIFA World Cup will be announced in October. Mr. Monterrosa, however, thinks the allocation will be known in December.

Mexico - Spain not an "A" match

The friendly match Mexico - Spain played on August 11th, 2010 ended as a 1 - 1 draw. Both teams used more than 6 substitutes (Mexico 7, Spain 8) as you can see in the match report.

According the FIFA circular no. 1150, in national A team matches up to a maximum of six substitutes may be used.

The match won't be included in the FIFA ranking calculation.

2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying - Asia official format

AFC have announced today the format of the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. It will be the same format used for the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Because the first round takes place in June 2011 - before the official FIFA draw, I think AFC will seed the teams based on their 2010 FIFA World Cup performance. The order of the first four teams is: Japan, Korea Republic, Australia, Korea DPR.
