In just under 1 hour's time (6pm EAT/ Moscow time), the draw for the 2018 FIFA World Cup will take place at the State Kremlin Palace in Moscow, Russia. It will determine the group in which each of the 32 qualified national teams will play in at the start of the tournament. The teams will be divided into four pots of eight, with one team selected from each pot to form a group.

Unlike previous editions of the World Cup, all pots will be determined by each national team's October 2017 FIFA World Ranking, with Pot 1 containing the highest-ranked teams, Pot 2 containing the next highest-ranked teams, and so on; in previous editions only one pot containing the highest-ranked teams was determined by rank, with the other three pots determined by continental confederation. The hosts will continue to be placed in Pot 1 and treated as a seeded team, therefore, Pot 1 will consist of hosts Russia and the seven highest-ranked teams that qualify for the tournament.

The draw sequence will start with pot 1 and end with pot 4.

As with previous editions, no group may have more than one team from any continental confederation with the exception of UEFA, which must have at least one, but no more than two in a group.

*************

Hoping our Niggaz Nigeria and Senegal get favourable groups and manage to go far.

Can't wait to see what the Group of Death will be. Hope it's lethal.

Hoping my hero Messi (the undeniable G.O.A.T.) finally tastes the one trophy that's glaringly and unfairly missing from his cabinet. Last time was harrowingly close.. :(:(:(
