This means France will not be seeded but the Netherlands will be – taking one dangerous team out of the UEFA pot but putting another in

Argentina
Brazil
England
Germany
Italy
Netherlands
South Africa
Spain

Pot B (AFC, OFC and CONCACAF teams)
Australia
Honduras
Japan
Mexico
New Zealand
North Korea
South Korea
USA

Pot C (CAF and CONMEBOL teams)
Algeria
Cameroon
Chile
Cote d’Ivoire
Ghana
Nigeria
Paraguay
Uruguay

Pot D (UEFA teams)
