World Cup 2010 - Final Draw
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago


I'm excited and watching the draw, this is how it is going/went.

18:55 eh gads this dude is explaining the draw and it sounds very complicated I think he just said sometimes we will miss over groups, why make it so complicated! Charlize looks lovely though.

19:02 Some random sports people and Beckham have just come on things are looking like we may get a ball drawn soon.

19:04 The draw! South Africa to group A, Argentine to group be, England to group see, Germany to group D, Holland to group E, Italy to group F, Brazil to group G, Spain to group H.

19:07 Mexico to group A, South Korea to group be, USA to group see, Australia to group D, Japan to group E, New Zealand to group F, North Korea to group G, Honduras to group H.

19:10 Dude is talking again and making no sense JUST GRAB THE balls!

19:15 More balls! Nigera to group be, Ivory Coast to group G, Algeria to group see,Uruguay to group A, my god this is random, Ghana to group D, Cameroon to group E, Paraguay to group F, Chile to group H.

I do not know how but they are stripping the excitement from me.

19:20 oooh the slip up teams are coming

19:21 France to group A good group for France even Ireland could qualify from that one, Greece to group be, YAY! Slovenia to group see, Serbia to group D, Denmark to group E, Slovakia to group F, Portugal to group G nice!, Switzerland to group H.

19:25 Why when there is one place left in a group and one team do they insist on drawing the ball they are wasting my time and theirs.

So those are the groups, Group G looks very hard and England look to have got a good draw on the right half and with good teams.

Group A
South Africa

Uruguay
France

Group be
Argentine
Nigeria
South Korea
Greece

Group F

Group G

In case you missed it here is an alternative draw that captures all the glamour without the mind bending rules and dumbness.

This was a great draw.
I am Italian and American, and, well I am quite happy. Italy has quite an easy group, and for the US it will be a challenge.
The one group that really stands out is Group D.
There will be some great football in it.
Also the group that contains Denmark.
Can't wait for it all to start!

Group G : Brazil, Ivory Coast, Portugal, Korea DPR. Goes some way in establishing itself as the Group of Death .

Even the Devil couldn't have come up with that, Yikes!

Another thing to note, none of the African teams have an easy ride into the second group. Might dampen the spirits of the crowd and continent if they don't proceed to the 2nd round
ACMilan21 (AC Milan) 4 years ago
I think group D is more the group of death.... Amazing sides that play completely differently, and are all really good
Raj (Chelsea) 4 years ago
Good point Milan21, Australia are certainly adventurous and strong along with Ghana who are very efficient. But as far as clinical finishing and efficiency goes, I wouldn't bet against Germany. Serbia too are looking very very good finishing above France in their group with a very good defensive and scoring record. It will be a very tough group indeed, throwing up a few surprises perhaps.

I still do think as far as pressure and expectations go, Ivory Coast possibly being Africa's best team coupled with the home support, crossing horns with Brazil and Portugal in terms of sheer skill and conviction, makes it the candidate for the group death

I agree, I think the Ivory Coast will get out of this group. Who knows though? Great draw this is going to be fun

Viva Espana!

Donnchadh (Liverpool) 4 years ago
All are great groups that have a lot of potential, A would be more interesting if it was Ireland not France, but that is over I suppose. And now that the French are in I hope they do well, they should advance from their group easily. I think see D E and G will be the tightest groups, and the mostly contested, I wouldn't want to bet on who comes out of those groups, should be some great futbol going on in those
Aliko (Barcelona) 4 years ago
Group G is very interesting!
Haules (Chelsea) 4 years ago
England Spain Argentina Italy have easy groupes they can pass the groupe stage without any problems. Hope Cote D`Ivory will get in the semi - finals
Sam (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Hope so too, although it's virtually impossible unless they finish first in their group.... They would have to play Spain in the second round.... Although never say never-- the USA beat Spain 2-0 in the Confed Cup out of nowhere.... I just need the tournament to start already!
SirStig (Arsenal) 4 years ago
I feel bad for north korea, their first world cup in like 40 years and they're in a group of death with Brazil, ivory coast, and portugal, but that group will be entertaining for sure.

As an American, I am happy after the draw. I reckon we can at least finish second, I mean algeria and slovenia are teams that we should be beating with the squad that we have. There can't be any excuses for Bob Bradley.

But also, all the big teams got really easy groups besides Brazil, which have a tricky one.

And of course, Mexico gets in with South Africa, however I think Mexico can actually beat France, their new coach sparked a revival with Mexico and got them qualified after having almost being eliminated

Don't underestimate Algeria they played well in the qualifiers!
LeftHeadKick (Arsenal) 4 years ago
I don't know much about Algeria, but they worry me. Slovenia worries me even more. And yeah England is, so.... Kinda scary that I'm actually happy with this draw too

Any team that makes it out of group g will win the World Cup

We only agreed on a few groups, excellent Should be exciting to find out
Yogan (Chelsea) 4 years ago
Bring on the Cup! I heard it was on the 9th December but I must have been wrong, it was yesterday. We should be careful what we wish for you know, we have a hard group. But Brazil and Portugal together is going to be tough, along with the Ivory Coast who will definitely provide a threat. Hopefully France go out in the group stages! Spain are seriously going to own and I can't wait to see how Chile does. I knew someone would have got to making a topic like this before me! I love the draw, and can't wait for the cup. England - USA.... !

I don't think group G will be what everyone think its going to be. Brazil and Ivory coast are going to be the top two in their group. I think group A is the most competitive group. South Africa? Uruguay? Mexico? France? Does Anyone else see this?

I don't underestimate any team in their group. I honestly believe their will be a few surprises. Every Top country is somewhat in a position of not being where they used to be and every small one is in a position where they have wanted to be. So I don't count anyone out

I agree
