Forget about the World Cup for a second as the qualifying draw for Euro 2024 is imminent.
Germany are guaranteed a place in the tournament as they’re on hosting duty, Russia are banned from taking part because of Mad Vlad, so the 53 remaining teams will be whittled down to 23 over the course of a qualification campaign.

What are the seedings for the Euro 2024 qualifying draw?
The seedings for the Euro 2024 qualifiers are based on performance in the Nations League, with the top-10 teams in League A, other than Germany, being in UNL Pot/Pot 1 for the draw.
England and Wales are in Pot 2 due to their woeful performance in the Nations League. France will also be in Pot 2 after bagging just five points from their six fixtures.
The Republic of Ireland are in Pot 3, Scotland will be in Pot 2 or 3, while Northern Ireland are waiting to discover if they are destined for Pot 4 or 5.
