Nigeria Placed In Pot 4 as FIFA Announces Pots For 2018 World Cup Draw


FIFA officially announced the pots for the 2018 World Cup draw on its website on Thursday, November 16, 2017.

Nigeria who defeated their all time rivalry Argentina on Tuesday with a 4-2 memorable score have had their eyes and thoughts on this and can’t wait to be placed in a group.

In the publication, Nigeria is placed in Pot 4, which means it will not play any of the countries in that pot. These countries include; Serbia, Australia, Japan, Morocco, Panama, Korea Republic, Saudi Arabia.

Pot 1 has Russia, Germany, Brazil, Portugal, Argentina, Belgium, Poland, and France.


Pot 2 has Spain, Peru, Switzerland, England, Colombia. Mexico, Uruguay, and Croatia.

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

It was confirmed in September, by the Organising Committee for FIFA Competitions, that all teams will be allocated to (eight-team) pots 1 to 4 based on sporting principles.
FIFA also said it used the October 2017 edition of the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking to allocate all qualified teams to the four pots after hosts Russia took the top seeding spot.



“It is worth remembering that the principle of drawing the teams into the groups will remain unchanged. This means that no teams from the same confederation, with the exception of UEFA, which could have up to two teams in the same group, will be drawn into the same group.”
“The Final Draw will take place on Friday 1 December at Moscow’s State Kremlin Palace,
FIFA added.
