The Kremlin represents the history and tradition of Russia. This is where the fates will be determined for the 32 teams that advanced to the finals of the FIFA World Cup. FIFA even held a rehearsal for a successful group draw. Whenever a name was pulled out from the pot, the results were shown on the big screen. FIFA has adopted the seeding system for this year's group draw. Based on the FIFA world rankings in October, the seven highest-ranked teams and host country Russia will be grouped in the top seeded pot, and the remaining 24 teams will be divided into three pots of eight teams according to their rankings. Outlooks for Korea are not that bright as it is in the fourth pot among the lowest-ranked teams. The teams Korea will be grouped together with from the first, second, and third pots are all ranked higher and tough opponents. The Korean men's national team head coach Shin Tae-yong can only hope to meet opponents that are relatively easier to play against.

[Soundbite] Shin Tae-yong(Head coach, Korean Nat’l Football Team) : "Whichever group we go to, it's very likely for us to be in a group of death. But I still want us to face relatively easy opponents."

The group draw for the FIFA World Cup in Russia will be held on Friday at 6PM local time. Football fans from all over the world will be paying attention to Moscow at that time.
