Known from where the teams will come out

With the completion of the main part in Nations league last Wednesday the four finalists are known, who is going up and who is going down (although two more duels have to be staged). Apart from that, another thing which became familiar, are the seeds for the World Cup qualifying tournament who is going to start next year. But before that, groups have to be made on 07 December in Zurich (Switzerland) where the 55 teams will be drawn from the following six bowls:

Pot 1: Belgium, France, England, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands.

Pot 2: Switzerland, Poland, Sweden, Wales, Austria, Ukraine, Tukey, Serbia, Slovakia, Romania.

Pot 3: Russia, Republic of Ireland, Norway, Hungary, Czech Republic, Scotland, Iceland, Northern Ireland, Finland, Greece.

Pot 4: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Albania, Bulgaria, Israel, Georgia, Luxembourg.

Pot 5: Armenia, Cyprus, Faroe islands, Azerbaijan, Estonia, Kosovo, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Latvia, Andorra.

Pot 6: Moldova, Malta, Liechtenstein, Gibraltar, San Marino.

On the European continent 10 groups are going to be formed. Those teams who likes to qualify directly into the 2022 finals will have to be first, while the runners-up would have to (torture themselves a little bit more and) play additional elimination matches which will be mixed with the best two teams from the Nations league. For this World Cup qualifying event everything has to start at the end of March 2021, and one year later is expected to finish this saga.
