World Cup Qualifications

2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers – the AFC and the OFC

AFC Qualifiers

It is an ‘All or nothing’ feeling in the AFC qualifiers at this moment. The final two round will be played over the International break to decide the teams that secure direct qualification and the ones that will have to go through the playoffs to secure qualification to the 2018 FIFA World Cup from the AFC.

All the teams that are still alive in the AFC qualifiers have a great mathematical chance of qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Every point matters. 

Iran has secured their place in the 2018 FIFA World Cup from Group A while Iran and Thailand have both been eliminated in Group B.
