Reds discover World Cup fate after draw
The group-stage draw for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar has been made and there are plenty of exciting ties to look forward to.
Over 20 Manchester United players will have hopes of being involved at the tournament in the Middle East this winter, with Scott McTominay (Scotland) and Dylan Levitt (Wales) still having a chance to join them when the Path A play-offs reach their conclusion in June.
Dean Henderson, Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho have all been capped by England in recent years and the Three Lions will want to go a step further than they did in last year's European Championship, when they lost to Italy in a penalty shootout during the Wembley final.
Gareth Southgate's side will fancy their chances having been drawn against Iran, the USA and either Scotland, Wales or Ukraine in Group B, so there is potential for a Reds head-to-head.
France are bidding to become only the third nation to win back-to-back World Cups and Raphael Varane and Paul Pogba can look forward to games with Denmark, Tunisia and the winners of the first intercontinental play-off - the United Arab Emirates, Australia and Peru are in the running for that one.
Young midfielder Hannibal has been involved in recent Tunisia squads and will want to test himself against his United team-mates having starred for the Eagles of Carthage in the Arab Cup - held in Qatar - at the end of last year.
This could well be Cristiano Ronaldo's final chance to lift the famous trophy. The Portugal captain is 37 now, and along with Bruno Fernandes and Diogo Dalot, he'll be hoping for serene progress through Group H.
Edinson Cavani and Facundo Pellistri may have other ideas though as Uruguay are in there with them, along with Ghana and South Korea.
David De Gea didn't make Spain's recent squad but he will have his eye on being included this November as Luis Enrique's side will play Germany, Japan and either Costa Rica or New Zealand in a mouthwatering Group E.
Aside from Uruguay, two other South American sides have United representation, with Brazil (Alex Telles and Fred) tipped by many to extend their record and win the tournament for a sixth time. They're up against Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon.
Argentina (Alejandro Garnacho) are with Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland, while Donny van de Beek, currently on loan at Everton, will want to add to his 19 international caps when the Netherlands take part in Group A with hosts Qatar, Ecuador and Senegal.
