Pots announced for final draw for 2018 FIFA World Cup

Pots announced for final draw for 2018 FIFA World Cup

The pots were announced by Federation Internationale de Football Association on their official website on Thursday.

FIFA World Cup 2018 lineup has been completed, as Peru are the 32nd and final side to secure a place in Russian Federation after a 2-0 win against New Zealand.

With the likes of Spain, England and Croatia in pot 2 it throws up the potential for some very interesting and competitive groups - and, with the greatest of respect, every team in that second group will be looking at Russian Federation as the team they want to face in the group.

Countries will be drawn into eight groups of four, with each group comprising one team from Pot 1, one from Pot 2, one from Pot 3 and one from Pot 4. The top two teams from each group will advance to the knockout stages (Round of 16).

Switzerland, England, Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay and Colombia have also been placed in the pot.

How many Groups of Death could we see?

Start of deer season means big money in MI
The Ohio gun season opens November 27 and runs through December 3, with a second phase taking place December 16-17. Of the deer harvested over the firearms season, 54 percent were bucks, compared to 63 percent in 2016.

And Gareth Southgate's side have been placed in Pot 2 by Federation Internationale de Football Association blazers.

Back-to-back and reigning South American champions Chile finished sixth in qualifying, meaning the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Arturo Vidal and Claudio Bravo will be watching the World Cup on their TV screens.

Pot one also includes hosts Russian Federation, who are 58 places below France in the rankings.

With only England eventually qualifying from the home nations, here's all you need to know about who they could play next summer. Were England to draw Senegal from pot three and Saudi Arabia from pot four, they would have achieved the easiest group possible based on FIFA's rankings. Australia is now ranked 43rd in the world, leaving it in Pot Four. No more than two European teams can be drawn into the same group, and no more than one team from any other region can be drawn into the same group. Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama have qualified from CONCACAF while Iran, South Korea, Japan, Saudi Arabia and Australia are from Asia.

A hat-trick from Mile Jedinak helped secure Australia's place in a fourth straight World Cup.

In an ideal world, teams from the same confederation will not be drawn in the same group.
