Topic - Asian Football Confederation

The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) is the governing body of association football in Asia. It has 46 member countries, mostly located on the Asian continent. Due to the disputed boundary of Europe and Asia transcontinental nations such as Turkey and Russia are instead in the UEFA. Whereas countries such as Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia and Israel are entirely in Asia (Central or Western Asia) and still members of the UEFA. On the other hand, Australia, formerly in the OFC, has been in the AFC since 2006, in the same way as the oceanian nations of Guam and Northern Mariana Islands, which are also members of AFC. - Source: Wikipedia
