European qualifying for the 2022 World Cup is reaching its business end but the remaining confederations are behind schedule as a result of the coronavirus pandemic; Canada among less-fancied nations looking to qualify.

It is crunch time on the road to Qatar 2022 but with the European slots nearly done and dusted, there are still several spaces left for nations across the globe.

The qualification picture for next year's World Cup in Qatar is starting to emerge with 17 of the 32 finalists now known.

But while Portugal and Italy are heading for the nervy and newly-designed European play-offs, which established footballing nations are also sweating over their place at next winter's showpiece event?

We take a look at the state of play involving the other confederations...

Qualified: Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Netherlands, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland.

To be decided: A 12-team play-off tournament next March will determine Europe's final three qualifiers.

Scotland and Wales could face off for a place at the World Cup should they defeat Ukraine and Austria in their respective play-off semi-finals.

Both nations were drawn in Path A, with Scotland facing Ukraine at Hampden Park and Wales welcoming Austria to Cardiff.

Italy and Portugal were drawn in Path C, meaning they could face one another in the final game and now cannot both qualify for next year's tournament in Qatar.

But while Portugal and Italy are heading for the nervy and newly-designed European play-offs, which established footballing nations are also sweating over their place at next winter's showpiece event?
