It may seem early but, bo-lieve it or not, the qualifying campaigns for certain AFC teams begin today. I'd completely forgotten about it, until I read this article on the BBC, explaining how a 'living God' was cheering on Bhutan in their opening game. The 12 lowest ranked sides contest a two legged play off to see who gets into Round 2. Some of the first leg games have already finished, including a shock win for Bhutan (the only team in the current FIFA World rankings to have zero points): Timor-Leste 4 - 1 Mongolia Cambodia 3 - 0 Macau Sri Lanka 0 - 1 Bhutan The games still to play/finish are: India - Nepal Yemen - Pakistan Chinese Taipei - Brunei Draussalam The second legs are due to be played on Tuesday next week. As for the other qualifying zones, CONCACAF begin later this month (23rd), and the CAF and CONMEBOL begin in October. UEFA are yet to reveal the date of their start. OFC are using the OFC Nations Cup next year as their qualification process. EDIT: We should so adopt a team in each zone as EWB's underdog team!
These are the projected pots for the draw which takes place on the 6th December. Confirmation of the pots and the format of the draw will be announced some time next week. So, who do you think will win the tournament? I've had a strong feeling for Argentina for a while now, if not them then maybe Uruguay. I really don't fancy Spain this time or any of the Europeans for that matter, and I don't see Brazil doing too well either. As for England, I'll be happy if we get out of our group and don't lose on penalties.
