With all those mental scores in Group A of the Oceania Olympic qualifiers I thought we could start a thread where other similar oddities could be discussed.

In addition I am a big fan of the The Knowledge (@ The Guardian). The Martyrs
have already been mentioned there once (but only in a question).

One to watch: Panama have managed to squeeze themselves into the semis of the Gold Cup without actually winning a match.
(Paraguay almost did the ultimate trick, by getting into the final of the Copa America in 2011 without winning a match - but disappointingly lost the final 3-0 to Uruguay).

eujin asked (a long time ago now) about penalty shoot-outs in the group stages, and I'm sure I saw one or two examples of that before. Can't think of where I saw them but it will come to me.

I was reminded of the subject matter when I recently came across this exciting looking group from the 2014 West Asian Championship.

Code: Select all

 1.BAHRAIN           2  0  2  0  0- 0  2
=2.Iraq U22          2  0  2  0  0- 0  2
=2.Oman U22          2  0  2  0  0- 0  2

Note: Bahrain was placed first based on drawing lots.  No draw was made to decide
      the second ranked team, as neither Iraq nor Oman could qualify for the
      semifinals after Kuwait finished second in Group C with 3 points.


Full tournament results can be found here and here.

What I suspected is indeed true: viewtopic.php?p=38146#p38146 Wales were seeded in the bottom pot for 2014 qualification and are now seeded in the top pot for 2018 qualification.


So my request for this week's stat corner: Has any team ever gone from bottom seeding to top seeding (like Wales) in the space of four years? It can be any federation, but may have to be UEFA to follow exactly the pot thing.
