lol that just doesnt make sense unless there going with six groups ,coz we are ranked 37 in the fifa rankings and i think theres only about 19 or 20 euro teams above us in the rankings i thaught thay would have gone with 8 or 9 groups which would have put us in pot 3 ,so thay must be going with 6 groups with more teams in each group .

I think it's more to do with past qualifying performances for World Cups and Euros than world rankings.

this is a joke.

***gary are in the same pot as belgium.

yet for this years world cup belgium were seeded in pot 1.

what a massive contradiction.

bosnia in pot 1 suggests the ranking are based on last wc qualification. which then suggests ***gary are top drawer cos thier up there with belgium.

something fishy going on.

Nothing fishy, it's all per the rules and verifiable.

Team rankings and pot allocations
---------------------------------

The 53 teams involved in the draw are classified on the basis of the national team coefficient ranking system, for which their results in the following competitions are used:

2010 FIFA World Cup (qualifying competition and final tournament)

UEFA EURO 2012 (qualifying competition and final tournament) and

2014 FIFA World Cup (qualifying competition: group stage and play-offs).

Based on this ranking, the 53 teams are divided into 6 pots. Pots 1 to 5 contain 9 teams each
and Pot

... although given those rules, I'm surprised Scotland are not in pot 6.

scotlands results for the 2012 qualifiers were good ranking wise.

its just crazy seeing the likes of ***gary in pot 2, they have achieved nought for so long.
