The 32 teams are divided into 4 pots.

Pot A is based on rankings - Rankings are based on performances over last 4 years. More weightage is given to last 12 months, then 12-24 and so on.
Pot B, C, D are loosely based on geographic location.

So, Europe will be one pot, Australia-Asia-North America will be one pot - S.America and Africa will be one pot. It changes IIRC - depends on how teams from a certain area get qualified.

Then they do the draw. Pick 1 team from each pot for each group.

So excited for this
Donavan and the coachs' son have some personal b.s. going on.

Such bullsh*t that Lando isn't in the squad.Damn shame because soccer will only blow up in the U.S. only when team USA gets a Cup.

That last Cup ,with the last second goalie throw..that was amazing.
Kick it with your head Mario

The rankings are rigged, nothing more to say. USA could go to Italy and win and still not get in Pot A. Oh wait that already happened.

lol stop trolling. It's based on performances over 4 years, not couple games. What don't you get about that?
