The 2018 World Cup draw is set — Here is where all 32 teams are grouped


Friday December 1, 2017

The 2018 FIFA World Cup draw is here!

There 32 countries were divided into four "pot." The top seeds were all placed in Pot 1 and were assigned to groups first. Those were followed by the teams in Pot 2 and so on, with the lowest seeded teams in Pot 4 grouped last. A handful of adjustments happened along the way to keep teams from the same region out of the same groups.

Here are the four pots that determined the draw, based on the FIFA world rankings in October:

Pot 1: Russia, Germany, Brazil, Portugal, Argentina, Belgium, Poland, France

Pot 2: Spain, Peru, Switzerland, England, Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay, Croatia

Pot 3: Denmark, Iceland, Costa Rica, Sweden, Tunisia, Egypt, Senegal, Iran

Pot 4: Serbia, Nigeria, Australia, Japan, Morocco, Panama, South Korea and Saudi Arabia

Here are the groups:

GROUP A — Russia is the top seed

A1 — RUSSIA
