Scarily, there was talk of Australia boycotting the event over Russian spy allegations, but cooler heads prevailed in the end.The qualifying teams are divided into eight groups, followed by a series of knockout stages which begin on June 30.

Here are the groups for the opening stage:As you can see, Australia has it’s work cut out for it if it wants to progress to the knockout rounds. Even drawing against France, Peru or Denmark is going to take a lot of skill, luck and mettle.SBS is bringing the World Cup to Australian viewers like never before after dipping their toes into the new frontier of sports broadcasting.
