The final round of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, known simply as the Hexagonal, begins in mouth-watering fashion on Friday with a meeting between old rivals USA and Mexico.

Before that, however, on Thursday the South American qualifying competition for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ sees Brazil take on Argentina for the eighth time in a World Cup qualifier.

On the fourth matchday of European qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, perhaps the most eagerly awaited fixture is England versus Scotland – the first competitive meeting between the two sides in almost 17 years.

After the spectacular kick-off of round 3 of the African qualifiers in October, action resumes in Algiers on Friday with a clash between Libya and Tunisia.

The third stage of OFC’s 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ qualifiers started on Monday in Papeete, where Tahiti beat Solomon Islands. The rematch will follow on Sunday. New Zealand tackle New Caledonia on Saturday in Group A, before the two sides meet again in Koné just three days later. Fiji and Papua New Guinea will open their third-stage campaigns next March.
