World Cup 2018 play-off draw – live!

Some people think football is all about winning; some people are also c silly billies. Take today’s draw, for example. Though few players, teams and countries ever win a World Cup, simply being there is, while not as intense as Leicester-West Brom, the key to months of hope, pride, excitement and joy - and oh my days don’t we all need some of that. How those actually participating process the unfathomable emotion of it all, the rest of us will never know: can they or can they not brand themselves upon the history of their nation into the annals of humanity?

So today’s draw is a BIG DEAL, salvation in contemplation of failure as well as a gentle cattle prod that in a mere 209 days’ time, the glory of a World Cup will be upon us.
