Amongst the big teams in action on Tuesday are England, Russia, Italy, Germany and Argentina.
In European Group H action at Olympic Stadium, England take on a very confident Ukraine side in Kiev and manager Roy Hodgson has admitted that he is expecting a very difficulty contest on the road.
England sit a top of qualifying group, level on 15 points with Montenegro and a victory on Tuesday would see them moving closer to Brazil.
At the same time, however, Ukraine are just a point behind the leaders and a win for them would lift them two points clear for the English side.
“It is two teams, two good teams in the group, both of which are capable of winning the group, so it’s a cup final in that respect and you have to play well enough to win that game,” the England boss said.
In Group I France, on 11 points, take on Belarus, knowing that a victory is needed to stay in the hunt for a World Cup automatic place.
Elsewhere, Group C runaway leader Germany take on Faroe Islands, while Russia are at home to Israel in Group F and Group B leaders Italy take on Czech Republic.
In World Cup qualifying action in CONMEBOL, Lionel Messi and Argentina will qualify for the World Cup with a win over Paraguay.
In CONCACAF actions, the United States and Mexico renew their rivalry, with the visitors, who recently sacked their coach following a poor run in qualifiers.
Both teams enter the contest on the back of defeats and will be hoping to bounce back quickly at the Columbus Crew Stadium.
