It’s time to take care of their qualifications to Qatar 2022 as nations begin to secure their places at the tournament next year. Several teams have qualified for the renowned event while others will have to settle their fate through the play-off which will take place later next year.
As the host nation, Qatar already has been given an automatic qualification to next year’s event, which will be having 32 teams in eight groups of four and will be held between November 21 and December 18.
A World Cup for four time, winners Germany were the first team to book a spot through the qualification process in October as UEFA Group J winners, with Denmark booking their place just one day later.
In November, Brazil – the most successful national team in World Cup history with five trophies – became the fourth team to secure qualification as one of the top four teams in South America’s groups.

EPL: It’ll be a win-win – Paul Merson tells Ronaldo club to join
Arsenal legend, Paul Merson has backed Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo to join Premier League giants, Chelsea, this summer.
Merson believes it would be a win-win situation if Ronaldo joins Chelsea from Manchester United.
Ronaldo had already informed Man United that he wanted to leave the club if they found a suitable offer.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has been linked with Chelsea, Bayern Munich, AS Roma and Napoli in the past.
“I think he might be tempted to leave as it goes – the way it is going at the moment,” Merson wrote in his Sky column.
“We are hearing that he wants to play in the Champions League, so I think that might happen.
“I think it will be a win-win situation if he does go [to Chelsea]. I think it needs to get sorted sooner than later – the season’s like four or five weeks away.
“It’s been clear Man Utd won’t be in the Champions League for a long time. I don’t know why this wasn’t nipped in the bud early doors.
“It’s hard to drag on this long. I’d be a bit disappointed if I was a Man Utd fan.”
