AFC announces seeding for 2019 Asian Cup draw

In a move widely reported in the build up to the draw the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) has announced it will change the method used determine seeding for the Asian Cup draw.  This is the first time football's governing body in Asia has seeded the tournament's fields of participants without the use of the FIFA ranking since 2000. 
The change ensures that teams who have not played a competitive match since September (the end of the World Cup qualifying Round 3) were not penalized for participating in friendlies during that time frame.
