    Asia’s automatic spots are done. Iraq beat the UAE so the other playoff spot is still open.
    Looking at AFC qualification as a whole, very surprised to see Guam in there. And they made the jump from Oceania a decade before Australia. They still play in other tournaments with all the Oceania teams, so I guess I don’t see why they moved unless they just wanted to play other teams.

      They are supposed to secure a real TV schedule beforehand.

        Guam is a piece of the United States. Am I missing something?

          Well, at least we can watch road games now to begin with. Used to have to pay $400/mo in cable for the extra super premium sports package to get standard def BeIn or watch the most pixelated stream ever broadcast on some totally legit website.

          I actually ended up with BeIn for about the last four months or so that PSVue was a thing. I don’t know how that network makes money, but boy did they have some obscure soccer games.

              Doesn't Puerto Rico have their own team? (They do for the Olympics.)

                International windows are decided years in advance and FIFA regulations dictate on what days matches can be held.

                And, as stated for the thousandth time, US Soccer has zero control of the media rights for away World Cup Qualifying matches. Finally, kickoff times for matches are controlled by the host team (with the exception of the final matchday which is controlled by CONCACAF).

                  Being a territory doesn't prohibit them from having a national team. Same as PR.

                    So are Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. All three are independent FIFA members with their own associations and National teams.

                          • There’s one thing about tonight that can be affected:

                            Supposedly, supposedly (I haven’t fully checked), if the US wins all three matches this window AND Italy doesn’t qualify then the US would be a Pot 1 seeded team.
