World Cup 2010 South Africa. Champions : Spain

I asked Peta Pan, about starting a thread related to the World Cup and closer to the event, then it will be a sticky.

The draw is coming out on Friday.


Hope for some interesting groups.


Code:
Group A		Group B		Group C		Group D		Group E		Group F		Group G		Group H	
South Africa	Argentina	England		Germany		Netherlands	Italy		Brazil		Spain
Mexico		South Korea	USA		Australia	Japan		NZ		North Korea	Honduras
France		Nigeria		Algeria		Serbia		Cameroon	Paraguay	Ivory Coast	Chile		
Uruguay		Greece		Slovenia	Ghana		Denmark		Slovakia	Portugal	Switzerland


http://en.mcdonalds.fantasy.fifa.com/M/home.mc

League name: MTF
The code to join is: 658347-131883

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: World Cup 2010 South Africa

Looking forward to the draw, not really too fussed with who we get, as long as it's not Spain, because whenever we qualified for a big competition we drew them.

I guess the ideal draw would be against South Africa, North Korea and Paraguay.

Re: World Cup 2010 South Africa

The Aussies have been talking it up, they would have loved to have got Italy or England again.

French handball team, could be fun. Aussies got no imagination up front.

Fuck yeah, total joke. At least the French in the last 3 World Cups have won 1, made the final in another, then there was Korea-Japan

Re: World Cup 2010 South Africa

Paraguay is a tricky team, best opponents are Slovenia, Algeria and New Zealand, perhaps?

It's good that we are being underestimated by most and tbh the names in our team don't exactly strike fear into opponents, but realistically I think we are better than Slovakia, despite them winning the group, as we beat both home and away in qualifying. Teamwise we are very strong, great unity and team spirit.

Paraguay would be nice for some revenge from 2002 and if we'd get South Africa, then we couldn't get any other African team.

I think everyone wants New Zealand.
