According to the October rankings, Germany, Brazil, Portugal, Argentina, Belgium, Poland and France will be in pot 1 along with hosts Russian Federation. The Russian national team plunged in the newly-published monthly ratings edition of the world's governing body of football, FIFA, to 65th place, which is a new record-low position in the ratings history for the Russian squad. Northern Ireland are new to the play-offs, having qualified automatically for last year's European Championships.

FIFA previously announced that October FIFA rankings would be used to allocate World Cup qualified teams to the four pots according to their ranking in descending order.

Northern Ireland join the Republic of Ireland as an unseeded country in the draw, but have fallen to 23 in the latest standings.

The draw for the final qualifiers takes place on Tuesday and will determine the pairings of the four matches, with those ranked highest avoiding each other. The balls are then mixed and drawn one-by-one.
