A few countries – North Korea, Vanuatu, and Cook Islands – withdrew from the qualifiers due to covid-enforced traveling restrictions. Meanwhile, FIFA suspended Russia from participating in any of its competitions owing to the European nation’s invasion of Ukraine.

Four-time World Cup champion Italy failed to qualify for Qatar after a shock defeat against North Macedonia. Nigeria, Sweden, Ukraine, and Egypt couldn’t seal the final qualification.
