The qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar are nearly finished, with just a few more spots up for grabs. Every team besides the host nation is required to qualify. There are a huge 211 nations eligible for the competition. The catch, though, is only 32 teams are allowed in the tournament. Once you subtract Qatar's place, only 31 spots remain. Now that's cutthroat.
Each country is split into their delegated FIFA continental confederation for qualifying purposes. This is as each confederation is allocated a specific amount of slots for the World Cup.
The qualification process is currently unfolding in Europe (UEFA), Asia (AFC), Africa (CAF) and every other nation across the globe. Australia's Socceroos have reached the fourth round of AFC World Cup qualification, as the Australians aim to qualify for their fifth consecutive World Cup.
Socceroos' FIFA World Cup qualifiers: Start times and TV guide
Broadcasting rights for Australian football and its related competitions have been won by Channel 10 and its streaming service Paramount Plus.
The Socceroos met Japan, Saudi Arabia, China, Oman and Vietnam in the final round of FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 qualification.
Australia's first match, against China, finished in a 3-0 win for the Socceroos in Doha.
But Australia's road to the World Cup has come the hard way. They needed to finish either first or second in Group B, which included 10 matches from September 2021 to March 2022, to qualify directly. Defeats in their last 2 matches against Japan and Saudi Arabia meant the Socceroos finished third in Group B.
This sent the Socceroos to a play-off against the third-placed team from Group A, the UAE, which they won 2-1 with a goal near the death breaking the deadlock.
This last throw of the dice for the Socceroos is now an intercontinental play-off vs Peru to obtain the second last spot in the World Cup.
This vital Socceroos match will be played across Channel 10 platforms. The broadcast starts at 3:30am AEST on Tuesday 14 June on Channel 10 and 10 play, as well as Paramount Plus.
