"This is such a well-balanced group that we knew everyone would be looking for an early advantage. As always, there had to be some give and take, but I am very glad that we did not have to use the June qualifying dates. All the matches are double headers for us so we need to keep our good form going now through the friendly matches that we have and on to the start of the qualifiers next Autumn and beyond." - Wales manager Gary Speed.

Wales' record against Group A nations.

FYR Macedonia: Wales has never played them.
Scotland: 105 meetings, the last this year in Dublin (1-3 defeat). 'Classic' matches in World Cup qualifiers in 1977 (Liverpool) and 1985 (Cardiff).
Belgium: 8 meetings, the last in 1997. The most memorable? Perhaps the 2-0 win in 1993 that featured a great free kick goal from Ryan Giggs. Three wins, one draw and four defeats.
Serbia: no meetings as a solo team, but 2 meetings when paired as Serbia & Montenegro in 2003 (two defeats)
Croatia: 2 meetings, both friendlies, the last in 2010. A draw and a defeat. info from FAW

With 53 European countries entered in the World Cup qualifying draw, teams have been drawn in eight groups of 6 teams and one group of 5.

The qualifying matches are scheduled to be played between 7 September 2012 and 15 October 2013.

The 9 group winners will qualify directly, and the eight best second-placed teams will be drawn in two-legged play-off matches to determine the other four qualifying nations.

Ranking of second-placed teams: Because one group has one team fewer than the others, matches against the sixth-placed team in each group are not included. As a result, eight matches played by each team will count for the purposes of the second-placed table.

Group fixtures meeting is due to take place in the Autumn.

2014 WORLD CUP: Fixture meeting
Thursday 10th November 2011

Scotland v Wales: photo linked from WORLD CUP 
The fixture meeting for World Cup Group A will take place on the 23rd of November in Brussels, nations from Group A will gather to discuss and determine the fixture calendar.

The Belgium FA will host the meeting where officials from Croatia, Serbia, Scotland, Belgium, Macedonia, and Wales will be present.

There has been much talk about the calendar in Scotland where the association will try to avoid a matchup with Macedonia and other Balkan countries in the summer when the weather is extremely warm. 

This has been caused by what happened during the 2010 World Cup qualifications when Scotland lost 1:0 away to Macedonia in the scorching heat during the summer.  However, the worrgy in Scotland and the rest of Group A is that Serbia and Croatia will not be able to agree on anything due to the animosity between the two countries.  In that scenario, if an agreement is not reached, which has already occurred in Group D, FIFA will determine the calendar for the group.
