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.
In the meantime, we're asking football celebs in Australia who they'd like to see drawn with the Caltex Socceroos.
Today, we ask popular Fox Sports Football commentator Brenton Speed about his thoughts on the draw.
"My dream group would be: Poland, Peru and Costa Rica," says Speed.
"Why? Because I reckon we'd be a great chance of advancing into the knock-out stage of the World Cup against these three nations.
"However, if we draw a group of death I'd prefer it to look like: Argentina, England and Denmark.
" For both those draws, that would give us fantastic group games to watch across the board, and different to what we've had in past World Cups."
