South Africa, Mexico, Uruguay, France
France got very lucky with this draw, unfortunately South Africa is going out in the Group Stages.
Argentina, Nigeria, South Korea, Greece
1 spot is guaranteed to Argentina but it will be a fight for the second spot in the Round of 16.
England, USA, Algeria, Slovenia.
I gotta say I love this draw for the US. We have a good shot at the Round of 16 in 2010.
Germany, Australia, Serbia, Ghana
Germany is through, Ghana and Australia will duke it out for a spot in the next round.
Netherlands, Denmark, Japan, Cameroon
This group is good all around should be the second most interesting.
Italy, Paraguay, New Zealand, Slovakia
Italy and Paraguay will go through, no doubt.
Brazil, North Korea, Ivory Coast, Portugal
The group of death. North Korea is going 0-3-0 this time around.
Spain, Switzerland, Honduras, Chile
This is the one group where a clearly inferior team will get into the Round of 16 because 3 of the teams are pretty bad.
I have a few favorites for this coming World Cup and a few teams I am rooting for and against.
Favorites for the Finals: Brazil, Germany, Netherlands, Spain
Teams I am rooting for: Germany, USA, England, and the Netherlands
Teams I am rooting against: Ivory Coast, Portugal, Argentina, Italy and Mexico.
And I’d just like to say, I am so excited for next Summer. When we get closer to the World Cup we will get into some predictions for group winners and everything else.
