World Cup 2010 draw.....what are your thoughts?

On Saturday (Dec 5), the fate of the teams playing in next year's tourney in South Africa were sealed. There weren't any so-called 'group of death' in my opinion. Many teams would be happy with the draw, especially England. Having said that, I was never really an England fan....I just like to watch them play (and then horrendously run out of stamina and creativity towards the end! LOL). I feel that many heavyweight teams will find it relatively easier to stroll through the second round, though not many would want to claim bragging rights of 'sure-fire' winning their respective groups.

I was a supporter of France since the days of ol' Zinedine, but lately their lacksture of creativity, desire to win and their 'unique way' of qualifying dampens my support towards them. As unique as it was, handball rules cannot be confused with that of football. LOL! Mr. Henry's blatant handball even attracted many negative comments from the French people. I feel sorry for the Irish. Although I would really have loved to see both Ireland and France through.

So here they are, as if you haven't seen them already.....hahha! Here's to a wonderful tournament next year.

Group A
South Africa, Mexico, Uruguay, France

Group B
Argentina, Nigeria, South Korea, Greece

Group C

What are your thoughts on the draw? Lemme know of your favourite teams.....or are there any teams that did not deserve to qualify in the first place (leave France alone people!!! LOL!!!!)....

Seems like there are a few new players in the coming World Cup. New ZEALAND is one of them. I think there will be lots of surprises coming in this world cup :)
