Driving in continental Europe

Right, here's a silly question. I drive a manual car in the UK, where the pedals are obviously clutch (left) brake (middle) and accelerator (right). Assuming my car (Ford Fiesta) is standard, the gearstick positions are 1st gear (upper left), 2nd (bottom left), 3rd (upper middle), 4th (lower middle-right) and 5th (top right).

If you've ever driven a car of continental European make, in continental Europe where you drive on the right, are a) the pedal and b) the gear positions the same, or are either of them reversed? Google says the pedals are the same, but can't find anything on the gears and I don't really trust what I can find on google for either of them tbh.
