City pair await World Cup draw

Bailey Wright and Hordur Magnusson will discover their countries’ 2018 FIFA World Cup opponents later today.

Wright’s Australia have qualified for a fourth straight tournament after overcoming Honduras in a two-legged play-off.

As for Magnusson’s Iceland, they will be making their debut at the finals in Russia next summer.

Iceland find themselves in Pot 3 for the draw, with Australia in Pot 4 – meaning the pair could be paired together in a group. England are in Pot 2 and could face either country – or both!

The draw takes place in Moscow at 3pm, hosted by former England striker and Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker.
