Desailly tips Eagles for World Cup semifinal

Desailly tips Eagles for World Cup semifinal

But it helps. Russian Federation go into Friday's draw amid anxiety about their capabilities, anxieties apparently shared by the country's bigger businesses, who have been slow in offering themselves as official World Cup sponsors. Two European teams - but no more than two - can be grouped together.

The 32 competing nations have been split into eight pots based on their Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings.

Germany will find out who stands between them and a successful defence of the World Cup as the draw for the 2018 finals in Russian Federation is held in a glitzy ceremony within the Kremlin in Moscow on Friday. South Korea, in pot four, are of course former semifinalists.

Each of the eight groups drawn will contain one team from each pot.

Denmark are now ranked higher than England in FIFA's latest world rankings but were not high enough in October to usurp Gareth Southgate's side from pot two.

#WORLDCUP DRAW POTS Find out where all 3️⃣2️⃣ teams have been placed in the four pots for next month's draw in Moscow! That set them up with a playoff against New Zealand - hardly world beaters themselves - in which they edged through 2-0 after a scoreless draw in the first leg. Morocco, in Pot Four, could be grouped with Iran, who are in the third tier of seeds. The scenes we all witnessed when the central Americans qualified for their first ever World Cup were incredible as, you'd imagine, were the hangovers the following day - a day declared as a national holiday by the president in celebration.

Ball that will be used in next summers tournamentIs it possible to rig a draw?

The draw will take place on Friday, December 1, 2017, deciding the group stages for next summer's tournament. As expected they breezed through qualifying, which included a 3-0 demolishing of Italy in Madrid, and Alvaro Morata might just be the man to solve the striking problems they encountered at the 2014 World Cup.

Heavyweights Spain, being in the second pot, promise to make it an exciting draw.

The draw will divide the 32 teams into eight groups of four from A to H. Each group will play three matches, before the top two countries advance to the second round. So they desperately want their Group A to include a tamer trio of opponents like, say, Peru, Sweden, and Panama rather than a daunting line-up like, for instance, Spain, Nigeria and Costa Rica.

Based on Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings Russia, Senegal and Saudi Arabia.
