World Cup "Pots" drawn for final draw on Friday.

Pot #1 - Seeded teams:
South Africa, Brazil, Spain, The Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Argentina, England

Pot #2 - From Asia, Oceania, North America (CONCACAF)
Australia, Japan, Korea DPR, Korea Republic, New Zealand, Honduras, Mexico, USA

Pot #3 - Africa & South America
Algeria, Cameroon, Cote d'Ivorie, Ghana, Nigeria, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay

Pot #4 - Europe
Denmark, France, Greece, Portugal, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland

Except for Europe where 2 teams can be in the same final group no group can have 2 teams from the same Federation. By evening Friday, at least on the east coast of the USA, we'll all know who we'll be playing next year. Somehow or other the USA will wind up in the same group as Italy. That matchup seems to have become a tradition of some sort...;)

Let the good times roll and the guessing games on who you'd rather play begin...;)

Too funny and too true Neil.

BTW, how does Argentina get seeded? They barely qualified. I mean having Messi shouldn't get you a seed on that fact alone...

Thanks. I hoped someone would get a kick out of that observation.

Good question. Possibly it's FIFA rankings and past WC performances. Personally I think that it's to make sure dipstick Diego's head doesn't explode after he curses the world again for seeing and commenting on his incompetence & ineptitude.

How so? The teams from South America have to go into 5 different groups. That's 5 of 8 groups. There's a possibility that all 5 could advance out of group. After that, who knows. Anything can happen.

NJL (will the USA get out of group is what I'm sweating....if they do there is a remote possibility that they could make a run like they did in Confed Cup....Slim, to be sure, but sweet to dream about...;) ...)

The draw is just a few minutes away now and the BBC is all filled of talk about David Beckham and his wife. A little disappointing to say the least.
