As in each edition of the draw, the teams will be divided into four pools of eight teams each, ordered according to their FIFA ranking. With the exception of Qatar, which will be drawn into Pot 1 as the host country.

Being seeded in Pot 1 is an important advantage for each team since in general terms, it guarantees that the strongest teams in the draw will be avoided.

Who will be seeded in the 2022 draw?

The eight members of Pot 1 are defined according to their FIFA ranking, with the exception of Qatar, which is ranked 52nd, but will be seeded as the host of the event.

Six other teams have already secured their place as seeded teams, as they cannot be ranked outside the Top 7: Belgium, Brazil, France, Argentina, England, and Spain.

Next in line would be Portugal but the Lusitanians must get through the play-offs against Macedonia.

In the event that North Macedonia surprises Portugal and they are eliminated, the eighth seed will be Denmark, who have already secured their ticket to Qatar.

This means that giants such as Germany, the Netherlands, Uruguay, and runners-up Croatia will be in Pot 2 and could face another giant in the first round.

  2. Belgium
  3. Brazil
  4. France
