Who's in, who's out of the World Cup 2018?

FIFA World Cup 2018: Who's in, who's out with nine spots left

October 10, 2017 By Oscar Rojas
Argentina and Portugal booked their spot in the final matchday, while other teams will have to watch the tournament at home.

With only two games left for those teams that made it to the playoffs, there are now 23 teams that can start making ticket reservations for their trip to Russia.

We were treated with some of the finest World Cup Qualifying games in history, as teams such as Argentina and Portugal had to fight for their spot in the global tournament until the final game. Others like the Netherlands needed a miracle that didn't happen, and other teams that bragged about their chances of making the trip to Russia, such as the USMNT and Chile, were left out of the competition.

There will also be two teams making their debut in this tournament, as Iceland and Panama booked their spot in the competition until the last game of their respective groups.
