Matches[edit]

Group C fixtures were negotiated and finally decided by a draw at a meeting between the participants in Istanbul, Turkey on 17 February 2006.[1]

On 3 July 2006, the Hellenic Football Federation was indefinitely suspended from all international competition due to concerns about its autonomy from the Greek government. Although no announcement was made regarding this tournament in particular, this seemed to preclude the Greek team from participating.[2] Following rectifying action by the Greek government, FIFA subsequently lifted the suspension on 12 July 2006, allowing Greece to participate in qualifying.[3]
