Ivory Coast, Ghana and Cameroon join Senegal and Algeria in qualifying from Africa. All the big hitters from that section are through.

Another section complete - this time North & Central America. Costa Rica, USA and Trinidad & Tobago all going through automatically, whilst Mexico had to settle for the Intercontinental play-off despite failing to score in the last game against USA which would have seen them sneak 3rd on head-to-head.

13 countries confirmed finalists so far: Russia, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Algeria, Cameroon, Ghana, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Costa Rica, USA, Trinidad & Tobago.

19 more to go...

Are you still having to paint the less familiar colours yourself, in addition to playing the matches?

If so, your keeping up with the schedules is even more admirable. It's a fascinating concept to devise and take on, and is developing into a fine competition.

I've decided to use the teams I currently have to get them as close as possible to the team that is playing. If they qualify, then I will paint them myself, unless they are available on the market.

I will have to paint a Trinidad team but everyone else who's qualified so far I've got.

2 games to go in the Asia section and it could not be any closer in both groups. Top two teams qualify for the World Cup, third place goes into the Asia play-off where the winners over two legs also qualify for Russia. 4th and below means elimination.

All have played 8 games, they stand like this:

GROUP A
South Korea 15
Japan 14
Jordan 14
North Korea 13
Uzbekistan 6
Syria 2

GROUP B
Iran 17
Australia 14
Qatar 14
Saudi Arabia 14
Thailand 7
Iraq 1

Some key games still left to play too. Most notably in Group A, the last round of fixtures sees North vs South Korea! :crazyeyes:

That's fascinating. Eight of the twelve teams still in there with a realistic chance of making the tournament.

Three of them are going to be very disappointed.

It's certainly going to be enjoyable playing. Will be awful for the teams who finish 4th and don't even get the chance of a play off place.
