Just thinking that the draw in Algeria plus this defeat of Argentina (I hope we didn't make more than 6 changes) and Italy's ouster could push us to Pot 3?

Is this within the realm of possibility at all?

With this performance, we should be in pot #1 for the drawings :sneaky:

The October ranking will be used. The November games have no impact.

You are absolutely correct. Just checked. At 41, we head all teams in pot 1 and had these matches mattered, we might just have slipped into Pot 3.

Can you imagine Iran is ranked ahead of us likewise 3 of 5 African qualifiers who are all Pot 3. We are better than only Morocco and we are both in Pot 4.

Sadly FIFA rankings at best convoluted, at worst a system built for nations to scam their way to unworthy position in FIFA rankings i.e Wales, Romania.

If we have been playing like this two years ago, we would be in Pot One now. When we failed to qualify for two ANC's in a row, it should be expected that we would pay the price for it.

We won the ANC in 2013, and it did jack for us, we need to play Lithania, Wales, Northern Ireland, Romania, Poland and Liechtensten, Venezuela a few times and you will see us jump, Hey I didnt make the rules, Im just going by whats on ground

Nothing spoil. No matter what pot we land in, World cup not be moi moi. I don't think any pot 1 team wants to see us after a display like today.
