The draw for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar took place in Doha, the capital of Qatar on Friday, 1st April 2022.
Spain and Germany, two of the tournament’s past three winners, are in the same group, while hosts Qatar now know they will kick things off against Ecuador and Senegal on November 21.
Three teams are still to be determined, with two inter-confederation play-offs and a European play-off to be staged in June – potentially meaning an all-British affair for England, who will open up their campaign against the United States.
Reigning champions France face Denmark, Tunisia and one of Peru, the United Arab Emirates or Australia.
Brazil should be confident of progressing from Group G, while Belgium, Portugal and Argentina, similarly, should have the quality to make it through.
