FIFA World Cup 2014 Draw

The draw for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil will be taking place on 6 December 2013, announced a few days before the draw, the final potin division and you do it on what countries Netherlands to auctions as possible and what is not that they are in the same pot. At the same time, one can say, but a lot based on the ranking of who is in the pot. Netherlands goes into pot 2 and avoids the way opponents Italy, England, Portugal, Russia, Greece, Croatia and Bosnia.

How potin Division determined?

FIFA uses a fixed formula for determining which countries in the pot goes to the draw for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Here we look at the place in the FIFA World rankings and are countries from the continent as much as possible together in one receptacle to avoid example creates a group with only European or African countries only. The criteria for this are as follows:

  • Pot 1 consists of the organising country and the seven highest ranked regardless of geographical location
  • Pot 2 includes the digits 9 t/m 16 of the world rankings
  • Pot 3 consists of all African countries, issued the two lowest placed countries in South America and the lowest ranked European country
  • Pot 4 consists of all Asian countries and all of North and central American countries

Based on the results from the World Cup qualifications, the order on the FIFA world that determines the set of draw stand. It follows that, in order to see potin Division will look as follows:
Last-minute changes
Compared with the above statement is a change was made at the last minute. Currently France in pot four, because it is the lowest ranked European country. It sits there in a saucepan with the African countries. However, FIFA decided that the draw will determine which European country is in pot four.This country is in any case out of pot 2 and would therefore also be the Netherlands. The KNVB is equally obviously not satisfied with this decision and FIFA have asked for an explanation. Explanation of FIFA States that it finds a fair structure because the ranking right now very similar to sit and France would be disproportionately disadvantaged with a place in pot 4. It now has an equal chance to be thrown into the pot come as all other participating countries in pot two.

The situation of the Netherlands

Netherlands goes into pot 2 and is definitely not a group header. This can only happen when Uruguay in the play-offs would have lost. Uruguay is a message on the ranking higher than the Netherlands and Jordan did not. But Uruguay won the first leg 5-0 with all of the country from the Middle East.Netherlands rises so Italy, England, Portugal, Russia, Greece, Croatia and Bosnia, also in pot 2.
Group header that Netherlands will face at the World Cup in Brazil are Brazil, Argentina, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Colombia, Uruguay and Switzerland. The potin division cannot mention anything about host cities Netherlands where possible should go. FIFA announced that the main company unlike previous CHAMPIONSHIPS were in the same city will continue, but it will take a journey through the country. This “advantage” the Netherlands is therefore not wrong.
Best case scenario
If you look at potin division and in the light of the world rankings and head-to-head results from the past, the relatively easiest group occurs when the Netherlands loot against:

  • Switzerland
  • Algeria
  • Iran

In the worst case
At worst forms a veritable “group of death” and plunder against the Netherlands:

  • Spain
  • France
  • Mexico
