England will be among an unseeded pot of European countries for Friday's draw for the 2014 World Cup finals, organisers have confirmed.

FIFA has announced the procedure of the draw and as expected the eight seeded teams, who will be kept apart for the group stage, have been chosen according to October's world rankings.

The draw will be organised so that there will be no more than two European teams in any group of four countries, and all the South American teams will be kept apart.
