Each side will play three matches and the top two will advance to the knockout phase.

Then at 65 minutes, defender Christian Ramos netted the second after a mistake from New Zealand's defense on a corner. Peru will be in a pot of second-seeded teams alongside Spain, Switzerland, England, Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay and Croatia.

Several familiar figures fell short this fall: Italy, Netherlands, United States, Chile, Ghana and Cameroon. The final in Moscow takes place at 4pm.

With the pots confirmed, Coach Gernot Rohr's men might be drawn against world heavyweights like champions Germany, Argentina, Brazil and France, who are all in Pot 1.

The five giants have won 13 of the last 16 World Cups between them.

One of the deciding factors when coming to group composition is that Europe aside, no group can feature countries from the same confederation.

He led Peru to the semi-finals of the 2015 Copa America but they struggled in the early World Cup qualifiers, winning just one of their first six fixtures.

It is the first time in 36 years that Peru has qualified for a World Cup tournament, with next year's event being held in Russia. "To repeat such a performance is incredibly difficult".

Two recent ever-presents of African football, Ivory Coast and Ghana, also failed to emerge from an arduous qualifying campaign.

A total of 32 countries will compete in the 2018 World Cup.

With a population of 335,000, it's the smallest nation to qualify in the World Cup's 88-year history.

Will England be in that final?

How do we get tickets to watch World Cup matches?

With only England eventually qualifying from the home nations, here's all you need to know about who they could play next summer.

The political climate in Spain at present is particularly tense following the Catalonian government's decision to press ahead with a contentious independence referendum and their subsequent attempts to establish independence from Spanish rule. Stanislav Cherchesov's side are still smarting from a disappointing Euro 2016 campaign, and their lack of competitive fixtures since could be a boost for whomever comes up against them.
