  1. officially confirmed:
    FIFA ranking will be used for seeding:

    http://www.nieuwsblad.be/sportwereld/cnt/dmf20131004_061

    "Maar het Uitvoerend Comité van de Fifa heeft vandaag dus - sneller dan verwacht - beslist dat enkel haar eigen ranking in rekening zal worden gebracht. Als de nationale ploeg op 17 oktober (de ranking die beslissend is) dus bij de eerste 7 landen op de ranking staat, gaat het op 6 december als reekshoofd de loting in. De andere potten zullen wel op basis van 'geografische en sportieve criteria' gebaseerd worden."

    In English:
    "The FIFA Executive Committee has declared today, faster than expected, only their own ranking will be used. If the national team will be in the top 7 at 17 october (the deciding ranking date), they will be seeded on 6 december (sheduled drawing). The other pots will be decided on "geographical and sportive criteria".
