Why do South America continue to have a single-group qualification??? Each South American teams have to play 18 games while European teams have to play 10.

They can have two groups easily. The winners & runner-ups of these groups (total four teams) progresses to WC while the third-placed teams face each other to decide who faces the CONCACAF play-off.

That would be much tougher. Plus playing every country in the confederation seems like the best way to prove your ready for the world cup

I'm glad they are now determining fixtures via draw now. Before it was always predetermined. Example Peru always open at home vs Paraguay then travel to Chile

Some interesting groups

England got an easy one lol. As always. Funny seeing Scotland though.

Group A is group of death. Sweden always makes it difficult but still expecting France and Netherlands to go through

Group B Portugal and Switzerland

Group C Germany and Czech Rep

Group D can go either way. Not sure how Serbia are these days. Wales should go through but ROI are also a tricky side. Wales and Serbia in the end imo

Group E 3 ways as well. Romania are somehow in top 10 ranking so they must be doing somethign right. Denmark and Poland are good sides too. Can't say who will miss out

Group F will be England and Scotland

Group G Spain and Italy

Group H Belgium and Bosnia

Group I Croatia and Turkey



Might actually see England, Scotland, ROI and Wales all in WC18 lol

Tbh Wales has a one way ticket to Russia after this draw.

For South America, Peru has a very tough double date with Colombia and Chile. For us to have a chance at the WC, winning all home matches is an absolute must. A draw counts just as much of a loss at home.

Wouldve loved to face Uruguay and Brazil first since Suarez and Neymar are banned for 4 and 2 games respectively. Brazil and Uruguay are different teams without them

Mind you, the second placed teams will have to play play-offs and only half of them go through.
I hope Switzerland can pip Portugal to win Group B cheers

Great that England and Scotland will be facing each other in two competitive games, the first time since 2000. Not a hugely exciting draw otherwise.
