QUIZ: Russia 2018 the line-up so far

Russia

Can you name every nation to have qualified for the 2018 World Cup?

The group stages of the World Cup are now drawing to a close and we’re getting even closer to discovering which nations will make up next summers competition in Russia. In Europe the group stage is now complete, with eight of the best runners-up progressing through into a play-off. Of those eight nations two include Northern Ireland & the Republic of Ireland who face the prospect of a two legged clash against the likes of Italy, Croatia, Denmark or Switzerland. Fortunately England won’t suffer the stress of the play-offs after topping Group F ahead of Scotland.

Some of the biggest footballing nations have qualified for the tournament, but there’s also some notable omissions with the likes of Chile, USA, Wales, Ghana and the Netherlands missing out. So it’s going to be a bit strange without those regulars there but it gives an opportunity to some other nations to make their mark on the biggest stage of all, something which they’ll relish. Twenty three nations have been confirmed now for the tournament with nine places left up for grabs, which will all be confirmed over the next month or so.

With qualification drawing to a close, we’ve put together a quiz on all the nations to have booked their place in Russia next summer. There’s some very big sides missing as previously mentioned, so it certainly won’t be as easy as you’d think! We’re giving you a generous five minutes to name as many of the twenty as you can, so give it a go below and see how you get on. Once you’ve given it your best shot tweet your scores into us  @FootyAccums and we’ll RT the best! Good luck!
