Like, for example, Switzerland being one of the European teams handed a seed in the World Cup.
Switzerland. As in fondue, big mountains and absurdly nice people.
La Nati was handed the seed after finishing 7th in the recent FIFA rankings, released earlier today. The other six nations being put in the top pot of seeds are Spain, Germany, Argentina, Colombia, Belgium and Uruguay.
Uruguay’s place in the top pot is subject to their winning the intercontinental playoff against Jordan. In the event they fail to do so, the Netherlands will move into the top pot.
