Read that Sweden is confirmed unseeded. So Denmark will probably be in the play offs as seeded if France dont end up 2nd.

Knowing our luck from the playoffs we re gonna get Denmark.

Friendly reminder that in 2014 we could be facing Sweden and France but we got Romania instead.

LOL who's Greece? Oh only the team that beat you to the top spot in the Euro 2012 qualifications undefeated

Even though Croatia have bigger name players I also am glad we avoided the Swiss. We tend to typically play better against better offensive teams that have a weaker defence. Lets be honest We are goin

ffs denmark would be AMAZING to get. 

basically denmark >> switzerland > italy > croatia for me.

we owe them something from that game in oaka for the 1998 wc qualification where we needed the win in if i'm not mistaken we hit the post twice in the last min..

as i said fifa would like to have italy around so they'll get nothern ireland, while i predict switzerland will get ireland and croatia-sweden

serbia, albania, norway, greece

Way too good to be true are you sure? And if we win we go to the Euros or something?

I haven heard of that until now so I just googled it. Nice that means every summer we get some type of tournament right? World Cup, the following summer nations tournament and the summer after that euro? Is that right?

I calculated the October rankings for the playoff teams:

Seeded:

Switzerland/Portugal 

Italy 

Croatia

Denmark

 

Unseeded:

Sweden 

Northern Ireland 

Ireland 

Greece

We have a good team, but I don't like our chances of going to the world cup. Hopefully we draw Denmark or Croatia. 

Note: even if Sweden beats the Netherlands, they will be unseeded.

We can beat any of the seeded teams on our day. But I would think that we must fill our stadium (oaka).  hope that we play at home in the second leg.  Cause we can play our old fashioned style defensive football away first scrape a nil all draw and then come to Athens and get the job done. I would love to knock Italy out but then again I wouldn't want to lose to them either.

Denmark would be by far the best team to draw.

I like our chances vs Croatia, they have a lot of big name players Modric, Rakitic, Mandzukic, etc. but they always seem to disappoint. Portugal with Santos played the Greek defensive system to a tee in the Euros and they barely generated a quality opportunity on goal. If I had to pick one of the 4 i would say Denmark aside from Erickson who do they have?

well in fact scratch that, that's our pot which means we can't draw any of them. instead we'll get;

from pot 1; one of romania, hungary, scotland, slovenia

from pot 3; one of montenegro, isreal, bulgaria, finland

from pot 4; one of cyprus, estonia, lithuania

winners of each group will play in the semi finals and then in the final. 

this system guarantees an extra ticker for the european championship and means if we don't get there from our qualifying group we'd still have a chance by winning this one. in general it replaces the old system of friendly games. these games will be played between next september to next november while the semi finals around june of 19. 

euro qualification starts on march of 19.

^^^I think Croatia will be more wary of us rather than any kind of revenge seeking 

Agreed, they played well vs Ukraine but i don't think they would want to draw us.

Don't think so, I think they just draw them randomly from two pots. 

 

Just checked this video (previous World Cup playoff draw):

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zxpXVw7fUM

 

They draw from two pots and place the balls in a third pot and then draw from there to see who will be the home team and who the away,  for the first leg.

We will face croatia, denmark, switzerland, or italy. 

Italy barely beat Albania, I think we could take on all of them. The reason Greece does good against european teams most of the time is because most of them dont have much speed. its why we get killed against teams like brazil or colombia.
