Caltex Socceroos learn World Cup seeding

Australia has been allocated into Pot 4 for the 2018 FIFA World Cup draw, the game's world governing body has confirmed.

The Caltex Socceroos sealed their spot at a fourth consecutive World Cup with Wednesday night's intercontinental playoff win over Honduras.

And the national team now has a clearer picture of the challenge ahead following the announcement of seedings.

Each of the four pots features eight teams as determined by the latest round of FIFA rankings.

Australia will discover its group stage opponents when the draw takes place on December 1 in Moscow.

No teams from the same confederation, with the exception of UEFA, can be drawn into the same group.
