Gibraltar joins Group H in 2018 World Cup qualifiers

Gibraltar will join Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Greece, Estonia and Cyprus in Group H in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers. The decision was taken by UEFA's Emergency Panel, tasked with looking at the best way to integrate Kosovo and Gibraltar in the preliminary competition after they became the 210th and 211th FIFA members respectively last month.

UEFA's Emergency Panel also decided that Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia should not play against Kosovo for security reasons - with Kosovo joining Croatia, Iceland, Ukraine, Turkey and Finland in Group I.

Updated information on Europe’s preliminary competition for the 2018 FIFA World Cup will be made available on FIFA's website.
