World Cup champions Argentina and Brazil, who own the record for the most World Cup victories combined, will face off in the qualifying round. There is fierce rivalry among the ten countries, so teams like Uruguay and Colombia will also be looking to impress. Between 1998 and 2022, there were 32 teams competing in World Cups.

The top four South American teams advanced, and the fifth-place team competed in an inter-confederation playoff. When the competition expands to 48 teams for the first time in 2026, the top six countries will advance. The team that places seventh in the standings will then play a country from either the AFC (Asia), CAF (Africa), CONCACAF (North, Central America and Caribbean), or OFC (Oceania) for a chance to advance to the finals.
