Spain misses out as Federation Internationale de Football Association confirms 2018 World Cup seeds

Nigeria have risen three spots to 41 in the latest Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings announced today, but they still face a hard first round draw for next year's World Cup in Russia because they look set to be in Pot 4 made up of the weakest teams for the tournament. Even Portugal and Argentina aren't the most daunting top seeds-especially the latter, after its qualifying campaign-but nobody wants to gameplan for Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo in a World Cup.

This follows the latest rankings released on Monday. Russian Federation goes into the top pot, followed by the top seven-ranked teams, and the remaining 24 teams are spread into the three subsequent pots in order.

Federation Internationale de Football Association uses its October World Ranking to decide all four seeding pots, despite nine places in the 32-team World Cup line-up still to be decided in November.

The Republic, who have risen eight places to 26th, and Northern Ireland, who drop three places to 23rd, will face either Italy, Croatia, Switzerland or Denmark.

The second pot will contain Northern Ireland (23rd), Sweden (25th), Republic of Ireland (26th) and Greece (47th), so Northern Ireland and the Republic can not play each other.

When and where does the draw take place? The first ball drawn will host the first leg between November 9 and 11.

The "Blue Tigers" were ranked 107th last month but they are now at 105th in the latest rankings, courtesy their win over Macau in the AFC Asian Cup 2019 qualifiers last week.
