  1. Hi Ed, it looks like FIFA has included Burundi-Myanmar 2-1 this Saturday.... - just saying. :-)

    1. It seems FIFA has recently altered the publishing dates of the November and December 2021 ranking. The November 2021 ranking is indeed published today instead of next Thursday.
      The December ranking will be published on December 23rd instead of the 16th.

      Henrik, thanks for the feedback.

  2. It looks like there won't be a significant enough effect in CAF to affect which 5 teams are the upper seeded teams for the playoff draw, assuming they use the November rankings

    ReplyDelete
  3. FIFA has included the following matches that I excluded:
    2021-11-09 Sri Lanka - Maldives 4:4; friendly tournament in Sri Lanka
    2021-11-10 Bangladesh - Seychelles 1:1; friendly tournament in Sri Lanka
    2021-11-13 Sri Lanka - Seychelles 0:1; friendly tournament in Sri Lanka
    2021-11-13 Bangladesh - Maldives 2:1; friendly tournament in Sri Lanka
    2021-11-13 Burundi - Myanmar 2:1; friendly in Turkey
    2021-11-16 Sri Lanka - Bangladesh 2:1; friendly tournament in Sri Lanka
    2021-11-16 Seychelles - Maldives 0:0; friendly tournament in Sri Lanka

    1. Actually Mr. Infantino attended the final in Sri Lanka yesterday.... - Seychelles won on PSO against Sri Lanka, in a pool of mud. :-)

  4. Is there plans to update the World Cup qualifications simulations? Anxiously waiting to see the updates for CONCACAF, CONMEBOL, and AFC after the second match of the last window.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Yes, this weekend, after the draw for the UEFA PO and IPO's, I will update the WC qualification simulations.

    1. Interesting story coming out of Africa suggesting they are considering having their play-offs as single-leg games at a neutral venue, probably Qatar.

      Delete
    2. Just like the IPO's. Can you provide a source for this news ?

      Delete
    3. I read on CAF's website that after the Executive Committee meeting today in Cairo the draw date for the CAF PO's will be announced.
