    We will probably start with a 2-0 or 3-0 victory vs Hong Kong. Will be very interesting to see if Turkmenistan can do something vs Uzbekistan at home.

      Of course it’s imperative that we finish first in our group this way we can maintain our FIFA ranking. If all goes well we will be avoiding Japan and South Korea in the next round as we cannot be drawn in the same group.

                Same. I hope for final round we get a juicy group, we are basically guaranteed anyways, might as well have some hard matches

                  No thanks. Playing Australia away is nuts. It’s way too long of a journey.

                    Meh, it's nice to see our team playing in Japan or Australia for a change with a good atmosphere

                          As long as the current FIFA ranking holds we will be avoiding Japan and South Korea as they will be in the same pot as us.

                            Oh so there will be 6 pots. Each pot will have 3 teams... In that case there is also a chance that we avoid both australia and saudi and get Qatar/Iraq (if rankings change) instead. But i wanna get Saudi .

                            So looking at the current fifa ranking : there is a chance we get this group:

                            Easy group:

                            Iran
                            Qatar
                            Oman
                            China
                            Vietnam
                            India

                            Harder Group:

                            Iran
                            Australia
                            UAE
                            Uzbekistan

                            Bahrain
                            Kyrgzstan


                            Ofc if they qualify to next round which is very likely for those teams. India beating kuwait and afghanistan . Vietnam will most likely beat Philipine and Indonesia.

                              Unsure but I may prefer B, playing vs (based on last wcq) strong Oman with Branko and Qatar with CQ. The other 3 teams wont help any top 3 team.

                              Playing vs Aussies would be fun and the other teams can take points away from both TM and Australia and that makes me strangely feel much better about it. We could drop a point vs Australia and they could aswell drop vs UAE.

                              Playing Branko and CQ would be fun aswell but..

                              Btw, is it possible that we end upp with S Korea again?

                              Thats the gut feeling atm..
