FIFA World Cup 2018 Teams

World Cup qualifying is over, and all 31 countries who will join hosts in Russia this summer have been confirmed.

Five-time winners Brazil are there, as are defending champions Germany, plus Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Denmark, Egypt, England, France, Iceland, Iran, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Nigeria, Panama, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Serbia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tunisia and Uruguay.

FIFA Draw Explained

Currently, teams are placed in pots one to four from highest to lowest Fifa ranking with the exception of Russia, the lowest-ranked team in the tournament, who are automatically placed in pot one alongside the top seeds.

Each pot is emptied one by one into eight groups — Group A to Group H — which contains four teams each. Two non-European teams from the same confederation cannot be in the same group to avoid geographic clashes.

With 14 qualified European teams, there cannot be more than two European teams in the same group, and the new, simpler draw format means there is no chance of a ‘group of death’ like we have seen in recent years.
