As England won group 6 yesterday, Wales can now qualify via the long play-off road. Only the top 4 group runner-ups go the the play-offs. with the following rules
Matches against the sixth-placed team in each of groups are not included in this ranking. As a result, eight matches played by each team count
The ranking of the runners-up is determined by the following parameters in this order:
- Highest number of points
- Goal difference
- Highest number of goals scored
The final round of qualifiers will be played in September and at the moment Wales first job will be to finish second in Group 6. Ukraine trail Wales by 3 points with a game in hand to be played on the 13th of September v Turkey.
Should they win that game they would be level on points with Wales come the final game Ukraine v Wales. If teams are tied for points overall the head to head result is the first tie breaker. As they drew 1-1 in Wales, the winner would take all. Should it be a draw and both side finish with 20 points a 0-0 would see Ukraine finish runner up. Any 2-2 or higher draw would see Wales finish runner-up. If the game finishes with a 1-1 draw Ukraine would finish runner-up as they have a better overall goal difference than Wales
I recommend looking at the following wikipedia page : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_FIFA_Women%27s_World_Cup_qualification_%28UEFA%29 it is very complete and concise.
There are 7 qualifying groups and Wales need to do better than 3 other runner-ups.
