I think its the seeds pre qualifying tournament which has us 5th

It's not. It's the 'national team coefficients established at the conclusion of the group stage'.

These are the current rankings


Going by that there is 5 of the playoff countries ahead of us.

Will they not change after this evenings games though?

Probably but as someone pointed out it doesn't go on FIFA rankings anyway.

Seems right, Czech Rep have passed B-H based on a win today vs a draw.

Estonia or Montenegro I suppose but neither would be a pushover.

According to the UEFA website they have  Turkey above us  by 2 places but the FAI would have done their homework wouldn't they, before they tweeted???

They are two ahead in the rankings which is irrelevant in this matter.

I will believe we are seeded when the Eufa statement comes out, the FAI are useless.

They are correct here i reckon all the talk before the game was that a France draw would let Ireland in as seeds.

The interim rankings were published after the september games. Since then Turkey have Lost one and Won one whilst Ireland have won both of their games. May be enough to lift them above Turkey and into the top seeds!
