Voided results during qualifying process

After Saint Lucia (from the North, Central America and the Caribbean region) North Korea became the second country who has abandoned the World Cup 2022 together with the Asian Cup 2023 qualifying campaign. While the first team has pulled out before games even started, the second one have announced this information two weeks ago or throughout elimination duels.
Hence the last group (H) of this joint qualifying process, which continues with 4 teams, needed to be restructured. Two days ago it was decided that all games that was played with this nation will not be taken into consideration. Also for final standings: results of the teams that finishes in second and fifth position at the first 7 groups (A to G) are not going to be processed in order for the comparison between each of the 8 runners-up would be fairly distributed.
