No matter who we end up facing in the playoff's, it's going to be a tough game. Croatia or Denmark would be my preference.
So is an all Ireland play off possible?

EDIT: Turns out it is. The teams are seeded from their fifa rankings into two pots, top four in one then the rest in the other. Assuming nothing changes between now and then this means the pots would look like this:

Switzerland 7th
Italy 17th
Croatia 18th
Northern Ireland 20th

Sweden 23rd
Denmark 26th
Republic of Ireland 34th
Greece 47th

Right?!

I thought they were both unseeded? With Denmark seeded. Not sure how they split them all though.

As far as I know, with both nations being unseeded it's not possible.

Points?


Dunno how I didn't think of that haha, yeah that's probably it!

Based on this quote from BBC sport:

"The Republic will learn at next week's draw whether they will face Switzerland, Italy, Croatia or Denmark."

It is not possible for both Ireland sides to face each other

Oh I swear I read it was based on FIFA rankings.

Damn!

Unless they stay clear of Michael O'Neill then I'll be happy enough.

They really should just make it a fair draw. Scrap the seedings.

Agreed, they've all finished 2nd in their group, just leave it open and see what happens.

Exactly what I am saying! More than that, if a third seed team made it to second place, why would it be fair on the to be put against a first seed team? I mean, if a fair draw made that pairing, fine but no need to bubblewrap the bigger countries.
