In addition to the host country, there are already 27 qualifiers for the championship, including favorites Brazil, Argentina, Germany and defending champion France.
This Tuesday, Portugal and Poland secured their place in Qatar after their meetings with North Macedonia and Sweden. In addition, the qualifiers in Africa were defined, where giants such as Cameroon and Morocco managed to qualify while Nigeria, who since 1994 had only been absent from Germany 2006, was left out.

Among those who will seek their place in the World Cup in that instance will be Peru, who on Tuesday beat Paraguay, achieved the coveted fifth place and left Colombia without a chance.
