The 1954 FIFA World Cup was the 5th World Cup, held 4 years after the previous World Cup in Brazil, 1950. The tournament was held in Switzerland from 16 June to 4 July, Switzerland having been chosen as hosts in 1946. For the first time players from Scotland took part as players in the United Kingdom team.

Qualified teams

Format

The sixteen qualifying teams were drawn into four groups of four teams, each with two seeded teams and two unseeded. Matches were played in each group pitting an unseeded team against a seeded team, as opposed to the usual round-robin format of World Cup group stages. As before 2 points were awarded for a win and 1 point for a draw. Goal difference was not counted, and in qualification Turkey and Spain finished joint first, so they had a playoff match to qualify.

Draw

The 16 entrants were drawn into four groups of two seeded and two unseeded teams.
