World Cup Draw 2018 Live

The 2018 World Cup draw is taking place Friday at the Kremlin, which seems as good a place as any to unveil valuable information of massive global interest. Stay here for live updates and analysis from Moscow. The teams will be drawn and placed into first-round groups one pot at a time: all the Pot 1 seeds first, then all the teams in Pot 2, and so on until the eight four-team groups are filled. It is a random draw, but there will be adjustments to keep regional rivals apart. Only Europe, which sends the most teams by far, can have two in the same group.\

The draw for the 2018 FIFA World Cup is finally here, as the 32 participating nations are set to find out who they’ll face during the group stages of the tournament in Russia. This year’s draw will see a few changes, as the pots have been based on the FIFA coefficient rankings, rather than geographical location. The seven best-ranked teams and the hosts have been placed in Pot 1, with the rest of the nations placed in the remaining pots in descending order. Here’s a look at the full seedings.

The draw at the Kremlin will determine the eight groups, from which the top two teams will advance to the knockout stage. Defending champion Germany is among the favorites, vying to becoming the first team to repeat since Pele’s Brazil did in 1958 and 1962. The five-time-champion Seleção, now led by Neymar, are contenders again, too, as are past winners Spain and France. The day is also a big one for Argentina’s and Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo, with rival superstars of the Pot 1 nations likely entering the World Cup at the height of their powers for the last time.

From the four pots, eight groups will be formed. Each group will consist of one team from each pot, with a few stipulations. The draw will move from Pot 1 to Pot 4, with each pot emptied before moving on to the next one.

 FIFA President Gianni Infantino held a pre-World Cup draw news conference Friday, but the topic of the draw barely came up. Instead, Infantino, appearing with Russia’s deputy prime minister, Vitaly Mutko, who leads the country’s World Cup organizing committee, spent more than an hour uncomfortably, and at times angrily, fending off questions about Russia’s doping scandal.
