  1. Excuse me, I just want to ask, why the team did not play a few months, the point can be reduced?

    1. As games drop from a time frame to another, the averages change, and thus the total points for the them also change. It could be positive or negative.

  2. Italy wins its WC qualifying match, draws against #2 Germany in a friendly, and ... loses two spots. Maybe the azzurri need to stop playing in order to climb the rankings.

    1. The qualifying is against Liechtenstein: pointswise that's like winning a friendly against a mediocre team. And friendlies never help your ranking when you are a top-team. If you really want to climb the ranking try doing a 'Wales': stop playing friendlies for a year.

  3. Ed let's assume that there are 5 south American teams in the top 7 and therefore (we assume) seeded for the world cup.

    Any thoughts on what fifa would do?

    I don't think they'll want that in a European world cup.

    Issue is even if they go back to a last world cup plus rankings plan I still think you get 4 south American teams seeded.

    I'd be interested in your usual pragmatic thoughts on the matter.

  4. Why shouldn't FIFA want 4 or 5 seeded South American teams in a 'European' world cup? It's the fair result of their own ranking(methods).
    If they start to tinker with the seeding mechanism, it surely would be a sign they don't trust their own ranking. On the other hand, I don't trust FIFA anymore when it comes to establishing seeding pots. So I won't be surprised when they do start to tinker with it and still maintain their sacred principle that 'the FIFA-ranking is used for seeding' of FIFA-tournaments.

    In 2014
    pot 1: 4 UEFA, 4 CONMEBOL;
    pot 2: 5 CAF, 2 CONMEBOL, 1 UEFA;
    pot 3: 4 CONCACAF, 4 AFC;
    pot 4: 8 UEFA - with a draw amongst all 9 remaining UEFA-teams to transfer 1 UEFA team (Italy) to pot 2

    In 2010
    pot 1: 5 UEFA, 2 CONMEBOL, 1 CAF;
    pot 2: 5 CAF, 3 CONMEBOL;
    pot 3: 3 CONCACAF, 4 AFC, 1 OFC;
    pot 4: 8 UEFA

    In 2006
    pot 1: 5 UEFA, 2 CONMEBOL, 1 CONCACAF;
    pot 2: 5 CAF, 2 CONMEBOL, 1 OFC;
    pot 3: 3 CONCACAF, 4 AFC, 1 UEFA;
    pot 4: 8 UEFA - with the lowest ranked UEFA-team (Serbia Montenegro) transferred to pot 3

    In 2002
    pot 1: 4 UEFA, 2 CONMEBOL, 2 AFC;
    pot 2: 5 CAF, 3 CONCACAF;
    pot 3: 3 CONMEBOL, 2 AFC, 3 UEFA;
    pot 4: 8 UEFA - with the 3 lowest ranked UEFA-team transferred to pot 3 and drawn into groups with 1 UEFA team

    If FIFA wants to maintain the geographical pots, beside pot 1, the logical thing to do would be to put in pot 2 for Russia: 5 CAF, 1 or 0 CONMEBOL and 2 or 3 UEFA teams, depending on 4 or 5 seeded CONMEBOL-teams. The 'lucky' UEFA teams are the lowest ranked ones.
    A step towards a seeding of all participating teams based on the FIFA ranking, as done in a few minor FIFA-tournaments already, could further solve the eventual problem of creating geographical pots of unequal strength.

    Fact: we have to go all the way back to 1986 in Mexico to find the first team, not seeded in pot 1, that became World Champion (Argentina). So a spot in pot 1 for Russia will be undeniably desirable. But it is not a guarantee of course. The games gotta be played by the seeded South Americans, also against strong European opponents. Last time in Brazil that proved to be difficult, especially at the business-end of the tournament.

    1. Three small addendums regarding the draw of the UEFA-teams in each WC:
      - in 2002 the 8 seeds were drawn in the 8 groups, then 8 out of 11 UEFA teams in pot 4 were drawn in the 8 groups and after that the 3 remaining UEFA teams were drawn in groups with only 1 UEFA team.
      - in 2006 Serbia-Montenegro were last ranked among the UEFA teams in the November 2005 FIFA-ranking, though for the seeding in pot 1 quite another ranking was used, based on performances in the past 2 WC's combined with 3 ranking-snapshots. In that ranking Ukraine was the worst UEFA-team.
      - in 2010 no special draw-regulations regarding the UEFA-teams were necessary.
      - in 2014 Italy was then drawn into a group with a CONMEBOL top seed (Uruguay).
      All these regulations were to assure that a maximum of two UEFA teams in each group resulted.

  5. Act surprised when the they decide that rankings are used but you can't qualify via a play-off and be seeded.

    :)

    That kills off the chance of 5 Sth American seeds.

    1. That's a very simple way of rigging the seeding, hopefully it doesn't happen though.

  6. Forty percent of games played. Time to start looking at probable UEFA play-off seeding groups:

    Pot A: Switzerland, Italy, Netherlands, Bosnia
    Pot B: Ukraine, Czech Republic, Serbia, Slovenia
    Out: Denmark

  7. Here are (in a few parts) the probabilities for each team in each confederation in world cup 2018 qualifying after the November matchdays from last week. The scored goals for each team in a scheduled match are calculated using ClubElo's expected goals formula, which uses the home team win expectancy according to elo.
