World Cup draw produces interesting results

Saturday, December 5, 2009

Pretoria - The 2010 Final Draw has produced some interesting results which saw South Africa being drawn in the same group as 1998 champions France.

With the help of cricket legend Makhaya Ntini, Springbok Captain John Smit, Bafana Bafana defender Mathew Booth and English football prodigy David Beckham, the draw was no doubt an alluring affair.

Italy's coach Marcello Lippi will certainly have a smile on his face after being drawn with the lowly ranked New Zealand for the opening match of Group F.

Confederations Cup champions Brazil will also have an easy one on Group G opening match when they play Korea.

The final draw as it stands is as follows:

Group A: South Africa, Mexico, Uruguay and France.

Group B: Argentina, Nigeria, Korea Republic and Greece.

Group C: England, USA, Algeria, Slovenia.

Group D: Germany, Australia, Serbia and Ghana.

Group E: Netherlands, Denmark, Japan and Cameroon.

Group F: Italy, Paraguay, New Zealand and Slovakia.

Group G: Brazil, Korea DPR, Cote d'Ivoire and Portugal.
