2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying draw seeding for UEFA (1 November 2013)

Assumptions:

- UEFA will keep the current qualifying system
- FIFA will use the FIFA ranking to seed the teams
- UEFA will choose the July 2015 ranking for seeding

The July 2015 FIFA ranking will include matches played between July 2011 and July 2015. This means we're currently in the 0.5 time frame and things will start to get interesting.

This the July 2015 ranking (for UEFA only) using matches played up to and including October 31st, 2013 and matches scheduled up to July 2014 (only those on fifa.com).

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

Changes since the last update:

Armenia and Slovenia climb from pot 4 to pot 2.
Moldova climb from pot 6 to pot 4.

England and Netherlands climb from pot 2 to pot 1.
Sweden and Serbia climb from pot 3 to pot 2.
