I believe it's a play off spot for qualification in October that is on offer. That first article says they could end up playing the match at home if things go their way this year.

Edit : and they've secured the Olympic play off spot later this year, beating the Czechs 4-0

Yeah, I think you are correct. Hopefully they can secure the Olympic spot in October.

One encouraging sign is they appear to be playing brilliantly under their new coach. There might have been a fear things would unravel a bit when the World Cup guy suddenly left but they seem as good as ever.
