FIFA unveils new World Cup seeds for Africa June 21

World football’s governing body, FIFA will release new seeding for the 2018 World Cup qualifying for Africa on June 21 following complaints from several teams.

Egypt is among the countries that had complained about the seeding which put the seven-time African champions in Pot 2 along with Nigeria, africanFootball.com reports.

The North Africans have argued they should be Pot 1 which is reserved for the top seeds.

According to a memo signed by FIFA Secretary General, Marco Villiger and sent to the 20 remaining teams in the final rounds of qualifiers, a special ranking will be released on June 21, just three days before the draw for the World Cup qualifiers.

The 20 teams will be drawn into five groups of four teams with the overall group winners qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
