Quiz! Can you name all 23 teams confirmed for the 2018 World Cup?

Of the 32 spots available, all but nine are confirmed – so can you name the national sides you’ll definitely be seeing next summer?

While there are still matches to decide the last four European places, African spots up for grabs and other cross-continent play-offs, we now know the majority of the teams that’ll play at the 2018 World Cup.

Some sides sneaked through this week, while other brave boys topped their qualifying group and will be 100% confident that football is coming home at long last. Unquestionably. But how much attention have you been paying to the qualifying process worldwide? Let’s find out.

Below are the 22 qualified teams (plus the hosts), alongside their FIFA ranking and ‘continental confederation’ group. Six minutes are on the clock – just let us know how strong your World Cup knowledge is @FFTArabia. Then go ahead and challenge some pals too.
