Brazil became the first team to qualify via the actual qualification campaign, and now lead the South American qualification table by 10 points.

Portugal is three points behind Switzerland in Europe Group B and needs a victory to secure first place and the automatic spot for next year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

The Western-Central European side is coming off a dominant 5-2 win against Hungary at home but will have a much tougher task in this game away from home against a much more talented team.

New Zealand were the winners of Oceania World Cup qualification after beating Solomon Islands 8-3 on aggregate, and will now face the fifth-placed South American team in an intercontinental playoff.

Switzerland now sit on the top of the Group B table with 27 points after a 5-2 victory over Hungary on Saturday.
