Albania is enjoying a very successful 2013, and have now set their sights high for the next world cup qualifying matches. Our national team actually occupies a creditable second place in World Cup qualifying Group E behind Switzerland , and we continue to entertain realistic hopes of an appearance at a major tournament this time
• Summer 2013: Official logo launch
• 9 March 2014: Qualifying round draw
• September 2014: Official mascot launch
The qualifying matches will start in September 2014. With the expansion to 24 teams, middle-ranked countries have a much greater chance of qualifying for the finals than earlier.
53 teams will chase 23 finals places to join hosts France. The seeding pots would be formed on the basis of the UEFA national team coefficients, finalised after the completion of 2014 World Cup qualification.
UEFA has not confirmed the format for the qualification, but Gianni Infantino stated in March 2012 that UEFA would review the qualification competition to ensure that it was not "boring". Michel Platini proposed a qualification format involving two group stages, but the proposal wasn't accepted by the member associations. In May 2013, Platini confirmed a similar qualifying format (even with qualifying tournaments in US , Argentina or Brasil ) but it will be again discussed during the September 2013 in the UEFA executive committee meeting, set to take place in Dubrovnik.
There aren't yet official ranks from Uefa but from these two sources :
We have real chances to get POT 4 .
With De Biasi almost sure as a CT and probably with other 4-5 newcomers we will have good chances to qualify Euro's for the very first time.
