FIFA World Cup 2018

The Tottenham man bundled home an injury-time winner to give Gareth Southgate’s side a decisive 1-0 victory over Slovenia at Wembley.

It comes after Belgium became the first European side through to next summer’s World Cup back in September. Jan Vertonghen and Romelu Lukaku were on target as the Red Devils beat Greece 2-1 to win Group H with two games to spare.

Both will join defending champions Germany in Russia after Joachim Low’s side maintained a perfect qualifying record, securing a ninth win from nine against Northern Ireland on Thursday., while Spain confirmed their place at next summer’s finals with their comfortable 3-0 win over Albania on Friday.

Japan, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Iran, South Korea, and five-time winners Brazil make up the 11 countries¬†already through to next summer’s tournament.

But there are some big teams facing the threat of elimination at the qualification stage, as Argentina flirt with the real possibility of sitting out of a first World Cup since 1970.

The Netherlands, too, could fall short while qualification is already beyond Cameroon for the first time since 2006.

Below is a list of the teams that have qualified for the World Cup in 2018 and the qualification spots still to be filled.
