2014 FIFA World Cup qualification – UEFA Group G

The 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification UEFA Group G was a UEFA qualifying group for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. The group comprised Greece, Slovakia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Lithuania, Latvia and Liechtenstein.

Bosnia and Herzegovina won the group on the ratio of head from Greece and thus qualified directly for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, their first major tournament as an independent country. Greece, as one of the eight best runners-up, advanced to the play-offs, where they were drawn to play home-and-away matches against Romania.[1] They won the first match and drew the second, thus also qualifying for the World Cup.
