The draw for next summer’s World Cup 2018 in Moscow, Russia has taken place!
England will be playing Belgium, Tunisia and Panama in Group G!
It’s a good result for the Three Lions. They were in the second round of teams being drawn and could’ve faced the likes of Brazil, France and Germany in the group stages.
The draw was hosted by Match of the Day’s Gary Lineker at the State Kremlin Palace in Moscow.
There are 32 teams competing for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which will take place between 14 June and 15 July.
England’s first game will be against Tunisia on Monday 18th June at 7pm at Volgograd Arena.
Defending champions Germany are the favourites to win the tournament – again!
Germany beat Argentina 1-0 after extra time at the 2014 World Cup to take home the trophy.
However, England were unbeaten in the qualifying round so could be in with a good chance.
The 2018 World Cup will be Gareth Southgate’s first major tournament as England manager.
