UEFA announces qualifying pots for 2014 World Cup

Good to see Slovakia in pot 2 instead of lower down on the food chain. I am not sure how much that will help in terms of group seeding, but...

Not that unexpected, we were Group winner in last Q, and 2nd in previous one.

Edgar posted his rankings and pots today. He said he would publish them on June 10. He usually is accurate and futbol journalists look at his site as well. The site, goal.com, had "officiallly announced" the seedings but didn't include recent results.

Pot 1: Spain, Netherlands, Germany, England, Portugal, Italy, Croatia, Norway, Greece
Pot 2: France, Montenegro, Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Slovenia, Turkey, Serbia, Slovakia
Pot 3: Switzerland, Israel, Republic of Ireland, Belgium, Czech Republic, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Belarus, Ukraine, Hungary
Pot 4: Bulgaria, Romania, Albania, Georgia, Lithuania, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Austria, Poland
Pot 5: Armenia, Estonia, Finland, Cyprus, Latvia, Moldova, FYR Macedonia, Azerbaijan, Faroe Islands
Pot 6: Wales, Liechtenstein, Iceland, Kazakhstan, Luxembourg, Malta, Andorra, San Marino

A few changes can still be made.

Only Romania and Estonia can move to a different pot. Albania, although scheduled to play Argentina, are already locked in pot 4 (win or lose).

Romania could still climb to pot 3 with a win against Paraguay tomorrow.

Estonia could still displace Poland in pot 4 with two wins against Chile and Uruguay.

Montenegro missed a huge opportunity. They could have been in the first pot with a win against Bulgaria, but managed only a draw.
