World Cup hosts Russian Federation held by Iran in friendly

Australia who have the in-form Aaron Mooy have qualified for three World Cups in a row

The Super Eagles have now missed just one tournament - Germany 2006 - since making their World Cup debut in 1994.

It's the first time the US have failed to qualify for the tournament since 1986.

Ireland pipped Wales to the post by beating them 1-0 in Cardiff and booked an unlikely place in those playoffs; They are joined by Sweden, Denmark, Greece, Northern Ireland and Croatia with more games to be played on Tuesday October 10th as play-off gopes will both die and come true with one last evening of games.

The friendly against South Korea was Russia's first global test since they exited the Confederations Cup at the group stage in June, which added to a long list of recent failures.

Iran, who qualified for the World Cup last month, are unbeaten in seven games.

South America qualifier: Brazil led by PSG star Neymar emerged as the CONMEBOL winners, Uruguay starring captain Diego Godin and strikers Cavani and Suarez were runners-up.

There are still final games to play in African qualifying, with three of the five groups still yet to produce a guaranteed victor. Russian Federation will automatically be placed in Pot 1 as the host nation.

The World Cup finals run from June 14 to July 15 in 12 venues spread across 11 cities including Moscow, St Petersburg and Sochi.

Eight second-placed teams will then fight for four remaining places in Russian Federation via the play-offs next month.

Back-to-back Copa America champions Chile were bumped from third to sixth in the South American table after losing their final game and seeing others around them win and draw.
