    Using FIFA ranking will prevent the formation of a group of death, but we might have one or two groups with 3 CONCACAF teams. This is not good business deal. My suggestion is to use FIFA ranking only to split the CONMEBOL teams into two pots and put all the rest of CONCACAF teams in the last pot. Risk? Possible a group of death with Costa Rica.
