Head coach Only this chapter

Dick Advocaat

Date of birth: 27 September 1947
Nationality: Dutch
Playing career: ADO Den Haag (twice), Roda JC, VVV Venlo, Chicago Sting, Sparta Rotterdam, K. Berchem Sport, FC Utrecht
Coaching career: DSVP, HFC Haarlem, FC Dordrecht, Netherlands (three times), PSV Eindhoven, Rangers FC, VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach, United Arab Emirates, South Korea, FC Zenit St Petersburg, AZ Alkmaar (twice), Belgium, Russia, Serbia, Sunderland, Netherlands (assistant), Fenerbahçe SK

• A combative midfielder, Advocaat's playing career lasted 18 years and included three seasons in the North American Soccer League with Chicago Sting.

• Twice served as assistant coach to Rinus Michels with the Dutch national team, where he earned the nickname Little General. Then took charge himself and led the Oranje to the 1994 FIFA World Cup quarter-finals in the United States.

• Won the Dutch Cup and Eredivisie with PSV (1995–98) before moving to Scotland and picking up domestic treble in the first of four seasons with Rangers. He then opted for a second spell with the Netherlands and led team to UEFA EURO 2004 semi-finals. Two years later he was in charge of South Korea at the World Cup finals.

• Returned to club football with Zenit, winning the Russian title in 2007 and the UEFA Cup – where he defeated former club Rangers – and UEFA Super Cup a year later. Left in August 2009, becoming Belgium coach two months later before agreeing to coach AZ Alkmaar for the rest of the season.

• Took charge of Russia in May 2010, clinching a place at UEFA EURO 2012 with a 6-0 defeat of Andorra on the last day of qualifying. In April 2012 he announced his decision to depart after that summer's finals and subsequently agreed a return to PSV. Returned to Alkmaar in October 2013 on a short-term basis.

• After an ill-fated four-month spell as Serbia coach in 2014, he successfully negotiated the end of Sunderland's relegation battle the following year. He extended his association, but a poor start to 2015/16 brought his resignation and he worked as an assistant to the senior Dutch team before being unveiled at Fenerbahçe on 17 August. The following May, succeeded Danny Blind as Netherlands coach for his third spell in charge.

Janne Andersson

Date of birth: 29 September 1962
Nationality: Swedish
Playing career: Alets IK (twice), IS Halmia, Laholms FK
Coaching career: Alets IK, Halmstads BK (assistant, twice), Laholms FK, Halmstads BK, Örgryte IS, IFK Norrköping, Sweden

• Janne Andersson succeeded Erik Hamrén after UEFA EURO 2016 having led Norrköping to their first Allsvenskan title in almost two decades the previous year.

• A footballer and handball player in his native Halmstad, Andersson became assistant coach to Stuart Baxter at the city's main club in 1990, going on to work under Tom Prahl and then Jonas Thern.

• Andersson, who also coached lower-division teams Alet and Laholm, took the Halmstad reins himself in 2004 and in his first season in charge was named coach of the year in Sweden after steering Halmstad to second place.

• After a brief spell at Örgryte in 2010, Andersson was named Norrköping coach the following year as they returned to the Allsvenskan, at first keeping them up then guiding them to the 2015 title.

• His appointment as Sweden coach meant he missed out on leading the club into UEFA Champions League qualifying, Andersson saying on his unveiling: "Right now I'm just humbled and grateful. This is an honour and a challenge that will be very exciting to take on."

Competition facts Only this chapter

The Week of Football concept enables fans around the world to enjoy the very best action from the European Qualifiers – which will determine UEFA's representatives at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup comprises nine groups of six teams, with matches played on a home-and-away basis.

Qualifying takes place under the 'Week of Football' concept, introduced ahead of the UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying campaign, in which games are spread out from Thursday to Tuesday, shining the spotlight on more teams on the road to the finals in Russia. Moreover, thanks to the Week of Football, at least 43% of matches will be played on weekends, giving fans a better chance to follow the action on television, in the stadiums and on UEFA.com.

Kick-off times will be set mainly at 18:00CET and 20:45CET on Saturdays and Sundays and at 20:45CET for Thursdays, Fridays, Mondays and Tuesdays. In double-header matchweeks, sides will play on Thursday/Sunday, Friday/Monday or Saturday/Tuesday. Each day of the Week of Football will feature eight to ten games.

The nine group winners will qualify directly for the final tournament. The eight best runners-up will contest play-offs to decide the last four qualifiers for the finals.

The 13 qualifiers then join hosts Russia in the finals to make it 14 UEFA member associations represented.

How qualification works

The other confederations have the following qualifying berths:

Africa: 5
Asia: 4.5
North and Central America and Caribbean: 3.5
Oceania: 0.5
South America: 4.5
