  1. Thanks for the update. One question. How do you get Faroe Islands points to be 8270?
    I get the total number of match points WC2014Q to be 97504 and for EURO2016Q to be 118004.
    To get average I divide 97504 with 10 and 118004 with 6.
    Later I use dividing factor 5 and get the total coefficient to be 9817.
    Can you spot where I go wrong?

    1. I include remaining fixtures as defeats (adding 10000 points). So Euro 2016 is 158004 divided by 10.

    1. Albania is now the last team in Pot 3 on League B, with Slovenia dropping to League C, Pot 1.
      Israel drop to Pot 2.
      Lithuania climb to Pot 3.
      Serbia fall to League D, Pot 1, with Finland now being the last team in League C, Pot 4.
