  1. if the match VIE_SYR still included, could it change something? VN could be in pot 2?

    1. No, only 15 extra points, not enough to overtake Korea DPR (last team in Pot 1 on average points).

  2. Why FIFA didn't include the match Vietnam win Syria 2-0 in May 2016 ?

    1. there would be at most 2 matches played on FIFA day (30 May - 7 June), so if the match had played in 29 May, it would have been counted.

    1. A result is generated for each match based on Elo ratings of the teams involved. Repeat 10000 times.

  4. I will try to explain this as simple as possible.
    The number of goals each team scores in a match can be drawn out of a probability distribution. This distribution is based on the relative strength of both participants in the match, expressed in the elo home-team win expectancy. If you want to know more about this, see the ClubElo website.

    For each scheduled match you can draw a number out of the probability distribution for the number of goals scored in the match by the home-team and you can draw a number out of the probability distribution for the number of goals scored in the match by the away-team. This way you get a match-result for the match. And that for each scheduled match. One set of drawn results for all scheduled matches is called one simulation.
    Based on a set of drawn match-results a January 2017 ranking can be calculated which leads to certain teams ending in pot 1, certain teams ending in pot 2 etc.

    Each simulation of match-results of all scheduled matches can result in a different January 2017 ranking and thus in a different distribution of teams over the 4 pots.
    Finally, over all 10.000 simulation-results you can simply count for each team how many times they end in pot 1, how many times they end in pot 2 etc. And these are the probabilities Edgar presents in his post.
