the top and the runner up of each group will qualify to the next stage ( the 4th round) to play in two groups of five.

then, the top two teams from each group will advance to the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil, while the two third-placed teams advance to the fifth round.

regarding to group B, i wish to see Lebanon make the surprise and go through this group. but i doubt this to be instead of S.korea and kuwait. it isn`t strong enough to beat them.

Prediction:

Group A: Iraq, Jordan (Depends on the games between China and Iraq). Iraq have not beaten us in ages and I really can't see them doing it this time either. China can be handled as well. I think it is a great chance for us to advance from this group.

Group B: UAE, Lebanon

Group C: Japan, Uzebikstan

Group D: Australia, Saudia Arabia (Even though I have a feeling that Thailand or Oman might actually surprise SA. I am not convinced of the SA team at all.

Group E: Iran Qatar

Vamos Argentina!

Zico is an Ok coach, even if he is a v. good coach, I do not think he can do a lot in a little time.

Good thanks for asking.


About Lebanon. At times, they can surprise people. I wish it'd happen here. :hopeful:

to see him in iraqi bench and Frank in the saudi`s would be an intriguing in the qualifying. of course that`s in addition to some other managers.

I would love to meet SA in the next round if both qualifies. Going to be nice having Frank in Amman and having SA players in Amman in the middle of winter I mean Saudis who are now in Jordan complains about the chilly weather at night in the high places they reside in, wonder how they will feel in February or March

hehe that`s because many of saudi nt players are from Ittihad, Ahli or Ittifaq.. you know these clubs are located in Jeddah and Dammam which are humid during most of year months. they`re not use to live in such cold weather as in Jordan. the rest won`t suffer as much as you think while they live in Riyadh and other cities.

btw, i live in the north of saudi arabia during most of years which similar to some extent or the same as Jordan`s weather. here it`s extremely hot n summer, close to 48 as maximum and very cold in winter, reach to -2 or -4c sometimes

48!!!!!Man, apart from a couple of days reached 38, it has been 32 in day time and 19-22 at nights with cold feezes!

I lived in Riyadh for a while and it gets cold there but the summer is absolutely unbearable.
