Squad Previews for the Upcoming WC can be found here and here

FIFA has announced World Cup draw seeds for the 2010 WC in South Africa.

Pot 1 (seeds): South Africa, Brazil, Spain, Holland, Italy, Germany, Argentina, England

Pot 2 (Asia, Oceania and North/Central America): Japan, South Korea, North Korea, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Mexico, Honduras

Pot 3 (Africa and South America): Ivory Coast, Ghana, Cameroon, Nigeria, Algeria, Paraguay, Chile, Uruguay

Pot 4 (Europe): France, Portugal, Slovenia, Switzerland, Greece, Serbia, Denmark, Slovakia

The draw will take place on Friday Dec. 4, 2009.  Teams will be divided into 8 groups of 4 teams each.  Each country to play opposing team in the group once.  Top 2 advance to the straight knockout rounds.

Not many surprises in the seedings.  Only one might be seeing the the finalists of 2004 not in pot one.  Instead we have Holland there.  But no one will cry for France, seeing as they got there by cheating and they did not win their group, whereas Holland was the first to qualify out of Europe.  So potentially a very tough draw for the French.  South Africa is there because they are hosts.

Friday should provide for some interesting debates and fortune telling.  Can’t wait.

  1. Most of the factor for the World Champion 2010 are saying Spain will win the title. But usually it isn’t the big favourite that will win the tournament, so I think Brasil will make the race.

    • the us national team won againts algeria by attacking the goal with seconds to go.donovan stayed behind roaming the net waiting for clearance.algeria couldnt contest the shot by running out of gas at the end.

      • It was brilliant, I am still ecstatic over this. Wonderful, just wonderful.

  2. ARGENTINA

  3. ITALY

  4. Brazil

  5. ´p edro

  6. Definitely go along with what we stated. Your explanation was certainly easy and simple to know. I present to you, I usually get irked when folks discuss points that they plainly have no idea about. You were able to kick the nail right on your head and explained out everything without complication. Is going to be back.
