off topic: Oceania as a sporting district needs to be abolished and those countries should just be played in with Asias groupings/qualifiers. Oceania is really pointless. Playing against Fiji and Vanuatu has no business in qualifying for any tournament or deciding ranking.
but its useful when it comes to rugby as Australia, NZ, Fiji, Samoa and Tonga are in the Top 20 and Asia only has Japan
and in soccer the Oceania winner has to beat #5 asian team in a playoff
they might play in a different region cause its a real long trip from say, NZ to Iran
