World Cup hosts Russia were the first team to secure their participation when FIFA decided to hand the hosting rights to the European country.

Brazil, who hosted the previous edition in 2014, became the first nation to qualify via the actual qualification campaign, currently leading the South American group by 10 points over second-placed Uruguay.

Iran and Japan booked their spots after winning their respective groups in the third qualifying round of the Asian qualifiers, while South Korea and Saudi Arabia joined them as runners-up.

Belgium became the first European side to qualify, leading their group by eight points over second-placed Bosnia-Herzegovina, while Mexico are the first side from the North, Central and Caribbean qualifying group to have secured their spot in Russia.

On Thursday night, Germany and England booked their tickets, leading their respective groups by more than three points and with one game to spare.

Serbia could become the 11th side to qualify if they beat Austria on Friday night, while Spain could also book their ticket to Russia with a victory over Albania on the same night.
