South Africa (Group A) get Mexico, Uruguay and France
Cote d’Ivoire (Group G) get Portugal, North Korea and Brazil
Ghana (Group D) get Germany, Australia and Serbia
Cameroon (Group E) get Netherlands, Denmark and Japan
Nigeria (Group B) get Argentina, Greece and South Korea
Algeria (Group C) get England, the US and Slovenia
All the groups look good for the African teams (may be not so much in Group G which is quickly seeming like it is going to be the “group of death”). My money is on Cameroon, Ghana and Ivory Coast. They have the talent and will sure get enough support from the “home crowd” in South Africa to propel them even further. Outside the Continent, Italy and Spain will be the teams to watch since they have the easiest groups – plus of course the usual Latin American suspects: Argentina and Brazil.
Let the sounds of the vuvuzela begin!
