It’s still a year away, but the 2015 Asian Cup is the next big thing after the World Cup. Today, the AFC revealed the pots for the group stage draw. The draw will take place next week on March 26.
*2014 Challenge Cup winner
There are eight teams in the Challenge Cup (to be played in May). They are: Maldives, Palestine, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Turkmenistan, Philippines, Afghanistan, and Laos.
The pots, as far as I can tell are based on the FIFA rankings within the AFC.
So, theoretically Korea could get a group of Japan (A), China (C), and North Korea (D). Although I’m sure the AFC would hate to see so three bigger teams get drawn together in the group stage. Anyway, it poses to be an interesting tournament.
Who do you want Korea to draw? Leave your dream group in the comments!
