What is it?
The next stage of the world’s biggest ever national team efootball competition. The qualifying group stage ran over four days between 15 March and 26 April, with ten group winners booking places in July's final tournament. There are six spots still up for grabs, though, contested by the ten group runners-up.

How will it work?
A draw on 29 April split the ten teams into two groups of five, who play each other twice in a 'home and away' format on 10 and 17 May. Each encounter consists of two 1-vs-1 matches and the aggregate score decides the winner. The top three in each group qualify for July's finals.
