The first three groups will be with 7 teams and Pot G will be emptied into these groups.
Then Pots F, E, D, C, and B will be emptied. The nations will be drawn into 1 through 8 in the order they were drawn.
For the Pot A, France, Spain, Emngland, and Italy will be placed into groups with 6 nations. During the draw if their names are drawn before Group 1,2,3 were filled, they will not be placed in these groups and be moved to groups 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, whichever is available earliest in that order. (The reason: They have more domestic teams in UEFA Club competitions.)

The winner of each group qualify to WC2006.
Two best 2nd place nations also qualifiy to WC2006. The comparison is made by comparing the points and goal difference earned after dropping the results vs the 7th nations in 7 nation groups.
Six 2nd place nations which didn't qualify to WC2006, qualify to 2nd Stage.
