The 12 matchups are:
India - Nepal

Bhutan is the lowest-ranked team in the world at 209 and they defeated Sri Lanka away 1-0 in front of 3,500 stunned fans. 21-year old Tshering Dorji scored in the 84th minute to give his nation their first ever World Cup qualification win.
Macau and Mongolia will have challenging three-goal deficits to overcome in their second legs. The other teams are all still very much alive.
CONCACAF qualifying will begin on 23 March.
