Cafu (Brazil), Lothar Matthaus (Germany), Jay-Jay Okocha (Nigeria), Tim Cahill (Australia), Adel Ahmed MalAllah (Qatar), Ali Daei (Iran), Bora Milutinovic (Serbia/Mexico), and Rabah Madjer are the eight former players and managers who conducted the draw. 

Here’s a look at all eight of the 32-team field’s pools:

Group A involves Qatar, Ecuador, Senegal, and the Netherlands; Group B contains England, IR Iran, the United States, and Wales; Group C covers Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, and Poland; Group D includes France, Australia, Denmark, and Tunisia; Group E consists Spain, Costa Rica, Germany, and Japan; and Group F represents Belgium, Canada, Morocco, and Croatia. Furthermore, Group G comprises Brazil, Serbia, Switzerland, Cameroon, Portugal, Ghana, Uruguay, and the Korea Republic falls into Group H.

The group phase will run from November 21 through December 2. The knockout stage will begin on December 3-6 with the Round of 16.

The quarterfinals will be played on December 9 and 10, followed by the semifinals on December 13 and 14. The playoff for third place will occur on December 17, one day before the championship game.

France, which won its second World Cup title in Russia four years ago, was placed in Group D with Denmark, Tunisia, and the winner of an intercontinental playoff round.

After an undefeated eight-match run through its UEFA qualification group, France is again among the tournament’s top contenders. Still, there is no shortage of opponents trying to dethrone Les Bleus.

Brazil, Spain, England, Germany, Argentina, and Belgium are among the other top candidates, alongside the usual suspects such as England, Germany, Argentina, and Belgium.

The competition lacks a clear favorite, and in the absence of such a force, the question is whether an unexpected victor could emerge from a large pool of sleepers.

This is the goal of fans of the United States men’s national team, which qualified for the World Cup this week after a rocky qualification campaign.

On the tournament’s opening day, the United States will face Wales, who won an intercontinental playoff against Scotland and Ukraine.
