Excitement is growing in Australia and around the world as the FIFA 2018 World Cup draw approaches.
The draw will take place in Moscow in the early hours of Saturday morning (EDT) and we'll have all the news, reaction and information on Australia's opponents on www.socceroos.com.au as soon as it happens.
