Head coach Only this chapter

Marcel Koller

Date of birth: 11 November 1960
Nationality:
Swiss
Playing career:
Grasshopper Club Zürich
Coaching career:
FC Wil 1900, FC St Gallen, Grasshopper Club Zürich, 1. FC Köln, VfL Bochum 1848, Austria

• A former midfielder, Koller spent his entire playing career with Swiss side Grasshoppers, making over 400 league appearances from 1978 to 1997 and winning seven league titles and five Swiss Cups.

• Capped 55 times by Switzerland, he scored three goals for his country and made two appearances at EURO '96, coming off the bench in the 1-1 draw with hosts England and starting the 1-0 loss to Scotland.

• Began coaching career at Wil in 1997 and took over at St Gallen two years later, leading the club to their first Swiss championship since 1903/04 in his maiden season. Returned to Grasshoppers in 2002 and promptly secured the Swiss league crown, but resigned in October 2003 after a disappointing run.

• Appointed by Köln the following month, he was sacked after the Bundesliga team finished the season bottom, yet bounced back at Bochum in 2005, earning promotion to the top tier in his first campaign.

• Dismissed by Bochum in September 2009, Koller was installed as Austria coach on 4 October 2011, replacing Dietmar Constantini. Missed out on a place at the 2014 FIFA World Cup but earned a contract extension until December 2015 and rewarded that faith by overseeing a first successful UEFA European Championship qualifying campaign as Austria reached UEFA EURO 2016, although they failed to get out of their group in France.

Martin O'Neill

Date of birth: 1 March 1952
Nationality: Northern Irish
Playing career: Lisburn Distillery FC, Nottingham Forest FC, Norwich City FC (twice), Manchester City FC, Notts County FC, Chesterfield FC, Fulham FC
Coaching career:
Grantham Town FC, Shepshed Charterhouse FC, Wycombe Wanderers FC, Norwich City FC, Leicester City FC, Celtic FC, Aston Villa FC, Sunderland AFC, Republic of Ireland

• The highlight of Northern Irish international O'Neill's playing career was winning the 1977/78 English title and 1979 and 1980 European Cups under Brian Clough at Nottingham Forest (though he did not play in the first of those finals). He also appeared at the 1982 FIFA World Cup.

• After injury ended O'Neill's career, he entered management with non-league Grantham, Shepshed and Wycombe, whom he led into the Football League for the first time in 1993 and a further promotion the next year.

• He left Wycombe for Norwich in June 1995 but within six months had gone to Leicester, whom he would guide into the Premier League, winning the 1997 and 2000 League Cups to earn two UEFA Cup campaigns.

• O'Neill was appointed by Celtic in summer 2000 and in five years at the helm landed three league titles and three Scottish Cups, the Scottish League Cup completing a 2000/01 treble. He also led them to the 2003 UEFA Cup final.

• Managed Aston Villa between 2006 and 2010, then Sunderland from 2011 to March 2013. O'Neill was appointed Ireland manager, to be assisted by fellow former Forest player Roy Keane, that November, and led the team to UEFA EURO 2016 via a play-off win against Bosnia and Herzegovina. Agreed to stay on until the 2018 FIFA World Cup before the finals, where Ireland were eliminated by hosts France in the last 16.

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
