Asian Word Cup Teams

Asian World Cup Qualification

The Asian Football Confederation will have four direct qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, plus the possibility of a further qualifier from a play-off. A total of 43 teams from the AFC have entered qualification, with the bottom ranked teams competing in the first round. Those ranked 38th-43rd on the list play-off in the first round and then go on to face those ranked 6th-27th in the second round. The winners then get to join the top 5 seeds in five groups of four teams. The winners and runners-up then go through to the fourth round of qualifying which is two groups of five teams. The top two teams from the fourth round stage qualify for the World Cup, with the two runners-up playing each-other in a play-off to determine who will play against a team from South America to decide who qualifies for the World Cup.
