The Greatest Show on Earth: FIFA World Cup (Russia) June 14 to July 15, 2018

Postby Leo » Thu Nov 16, 2017 3:51 am

Qualified Teams

Africa: Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, Tunisia

Asia: Australia, Iran, Japan, Korea Republic, Saudi Arabia

Europe: Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Iceland, Poland, Portugal, Russia (Host), Serbia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland

North & Central America: Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama

South America: Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Uruguay, Peru


The draw will be held on 1 December 2017 at the State Kremlin Palace in Moscow. The 32 teams will be drawn into eight groups of four.

For the draw, the teams will be allocated to four pots based on the FIFA World Rankings of October 2017. Pot 1 will contain the hosts Russia (which will be automatically assigned to Position A1) and the best seven teams, Pot 2 will contain the next best eight teams, and so on for Pots 3 and 4. This will be different from previous draws, where only Pot 1 was based on FIFA Rankings while the remaining pots were based on geographical considerations. Same as previous editions, teams from the same confederation will not be drawn against each other for the group stage, except for UEFA where each group can contain up to two teams.
