Assumptions:

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


The July 2015 FIFA ranking will include matches played between July 2011 and July 2015. The "0.5" time frame just closed.

This the July 2015 ranking (for CAF only) using matches played up to and including July 24th, 2014.
