    How do they qualify?
    The countries in each group will play one another on a home-and-away basis, with qualifiers scheduled according to the international match calendar between September 2010 and October 2011. The nine winners and the runner-up with the best record against the teams first, third, fourth and fifth in their pool qualify directly for the final tournament. The eight remaining runners-up contest play-off matches in November 2011
