2014 FIFA World Cup seeding: (Almost) official AFC 4th round

Update: 3 February 2012

See the updated seeding list.

________________________________

Update: 30 January 2012

On the morning of 27 January, the release date for the March 2012 ranking was 14 March. Later that day, FIFA brought the date forward by one week, thus the ranking will be published on 7 March, two days before the draw and what is written below is no longer true (i.e. the games on 29 February will now affect the seeding).

I did write on Friday to FIFA, AFC and all the involved FAs, but I can't claim the change of release date is because of me.

Original article follows:
__________________________

The AFC have announced yesterday the draw for the fourth round will take place on March 9.

Last August, AFC's Competition Committee decided to use the latest FIFA rankings to seed the teams for the fourth round draw.

Looking at the FIFA ranking schedule, this means the February ranking will be used, thus the 29 February games (last match day of the third round will not affect the seeding).

It would be better (in my very humble opinion) to postpone the draw for March 16 (two days after the released of the March ranking).

Already qualified: Jordan, Iraq, Uzbekistan, Japan, Australia and Iran.

Only one match left before the February ranking is released: a friendly involving the United Arab Emirates and Uzbekistan, on January 29th. However, Uzbekistan are safe between Iran and Iraq (that's a difficult place to be in, isn't it?).

Here's the table, with Uzbekistan's friendly counted as a defeat. With a win, Uzbekistan would have 469 points, not enough to overtake Iran.


1 Australia 832
2 Japan 762
3 Korea Republic 714
4 Iran 606
5 Uzbekistan 455
6 Iraq 439
7 Jordan 431
8 Saudi Arabia 407
9 Kuwait 399
10 Oman 377
11 Qatar 372
12 Bahrain 366
13 Lebanon 299
14 Thailand 235

4 years ago, the 4 lowest seeded teams of the 10 qualified for the 4th round were placed in a single pot.

Pot 1: Australia, Japan
Pot 2: Korea Republic, Iran
Pot 3: Uzbekistan, Iraq
Pot 4: Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar.

If Korea Republic don't qualify, Uzbekistan will climb to Pot 2, while Jordan will climb to Pot 3.

Team GB - what do you make of it?

As far as I understand, most of the Welsh and Scottish football fans are against the idea of "Team GB", a Great Britain football team that will participate as hosts at the 2012 London Olympics.

The Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish football associations are reluctant to participate, because they fear they will lose their independent status within FIFA and their IFAB spots.

However, it seems the English FA have approached players from the other home nations despite the opposition of the FAs.

More in this Telegraph article.

I've been asked by a Welsh reader to write an article about this to see "how this is received by a global audience". :)

There's nothing in the FIFA statutes to stop the English FA from selecting Welsh/Scottish/Northern Irish players for the Olympics.

So, two questions:

1. Should the English FA be allowed to select players outside of England, even though the Welsh, Scottish are Northern Irish football associations are against it?
2. Is this story making headlines (or at least the back page) in your country and what are your national media saying about it?

Something happening in the Gulf of Guinea

In Africa, all eyes are on Equatorial Guinea's achievement (and rightly so). The Equatoguineans (or well, the football players mainly born outside of the country) managed to qualify for the quarterfinals, eliminating Senegal in the process and will climb at least 33 places, from their current ranking of 151st.

However, another nation from the Gulf of Guinea is also making waves. Sao Tome and Principe (population: 163,000), have eliminated Lesotho (population: 2,067,000) in the first round of the 2013 Africa Cup of nations qualifiers after winning 1 - 0 in Sao Tome and getting a goalless draw in Maseru.

They will climb 28 places to 168th, their best ever ranking. Their previous record was 179th in August 2000. Just a quick reminder, Sao Tome have played no games between 16 November 2003 and 11 November 2011.

The Santomeans will now face Sierra Leone in the next round: 29 February at home and 15 June in Freetown.

2013 UEFA Under-21 play-off seeding

The coefficients for the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Championship playoff draw will take into account results from:

2009 UEFA European Under-21 Championship (qualifiers and final tournament) - 20% of total weighting
2011 UEFA European Under-21 Championship (qualifiers and final tournament) - 40% of total weighting
2013 UEFA European Under-21 Championship (qualifiers) - 40% of total weighting

More info about the Under-21 coefficient on UEFA.com (PDF file).

As mentioned before, I think there's a mistake in the regulations regarding the qualification points for teams that have hosted one of the last two final tournaments.

For Sweden (hosts of the 2009 final tournament) I used the 2011 qualification results (as in the regulations), while for Denmark (hosts of the 2011 final tournament) I used the 2009 qualification results, since I couldn't use the 2011 qualification results as in the regulation.

For the play-off draw, the seven group winners with the best coefficients will be seeded. Israel as hosts are already qualified. Their coefficient is 30302, good enough for 6th in the ranking.

Current standings available on UEFA.com.

Possible error in the UEFA Under-21 regulations

In Annex I of the UEFA European Under-21 regulations, article 3 b) says:


In the case of an association that hosted a UEFA European Under-21 Championship final tournament during one of the last two full cycles and therefore has no points from the respective qualifying competition, the points earned in the qualifying competition of the 2009-11 UEFA European Under-21 Championship are used.

In my opinion, this is wrong.

Denmark hosted the 2009-11 final tournament, thus it can't use the points from 2009-11 qualifiers. Maybe it should use the points from the 2011-13 qualifiers.

FIFA Ranking: February 2012 probable ranking

Next update: 3 February 2012. 

FIFA will publish the ranking on 15 February.

Probable results computed using the Elo Ratings. See the list of results used for this ranking.

Lots of movement in the top 10:

- Germany will overtake the Netherlands for 2nd in the ranking.
- Portugal will overtake Brazil
- Italy will overtake Croatia
- Denmark will overtake Argentina

Australia will overtake Japan at the top of AFC.

El Salvador will overtake Honduras and Costa Rica, climbing to 5th in CONCACAF.

Turks and Caicos Islands will join the group of teams with 0 points.

Côte d'Ivoire could enter the top 10 if they win all their matches and meet Ghana, Senegal and Tunisia in the knock-out stages.
