13 or 14 teams to qualify + France
The UEFA qualifying competition consists of four groups of five teams and five groups of six teams, playing a home-and-away round robin. The nine group winners qualify directly for the final competition.

Play-offs UEFA/AFC
The nine runners-up of UEFA will be put into one pot. Four European play-off pairings (home and away) will be drawn. The winners qualify for the final competition. The remaining European runner-up will contest a home-and-away play-off against the third-placed AFC team. That winner will also qualify for the final competition.
