The long-awaited draw for the 2022 World Cup tournament in Qatar has been made.
The pick was done today at 19:00 local time in Doha, Qatar, Naija News reports.
Countries were paired in a group and each consists of four countries as only 32 nations qualified for the world football tournament.
Naija News understands that out of the 32 teams involved, only 29 have been confirmed, as two intercontinental play-off matches will take place in June, while in Europe one of Wales, Scotland or Ukraine will book their place at the tournament, too.
