The Final Draw

The draw for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa was conducted yesterday.

Group A: South Africa, Mexico, Uruguay, France

Group B: Argentina, Nigeria, South Korea, Greece

Group C: England, United States, Algeria, Slovenia

Group D: Germany, Australia, Serbia, Ghana

Group E: Netherlands, Denmark, Japan, Cameroon

Group F: Italy, Paraguay, New Zealand, Slovakia

Group G: Brazil, North Korea, Ivory Coast, Portugal

Group H: Spain, Switzerland, Honduras, Chile

I will probably support England, who appears to be in an 'easy' group. Group G looks to be the toughest group and predictably dubbed the Group of Death.

The top two teams in each group will proceed to the knock-out stages. The ones in italic are the ones that I think would proceed.
