Jump to: navigation, search

The 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification UEFA Group E was a UEFA qualifying group for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. The group comprised Norway, Slovenia, Switzerland, Albania, Cyprus and Iceland.

The group winners qualified directly for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Among the nine group runners-up, the eight best runners-up (determined by records against the first-, third-, fourth- and fifth-placed teams only for balance between different groups) advanced to the play-offs, where they will be drawn into four home-and-away ties to determine the other four qualifiers.[1]
