Places are filling up fast for the World Cup in Brazil next summer.

Including hosts Brazil, 21 of the selection of 32 are already known to us. Mexico and Uruguay took giant steps toward joining them this week, with mammoth first-leg triumphs over New Zealand and Jordan respectively, while the European play-offs begin with a number of tantalising clashes on Friday evening.
