Friday's World Cup Draw

Postby GaryRissling on Wed Dec 02, 2009 1:51 pm

With CONCACAF being thrown into a pot with the weaker confederations, Asia and Oceana, we may already be in trouble for Friday's draw. I'm really struggling to think of a group combination where would even be a favorite to finish in third, let alone first or second.

South Africa
USA
(Algeria can't happen)
Serbia


the US might be a favorite in that group.

Edit: I forgot US can't draw South Africa and Algeria since they are both from the same Conference.

Yeah, I'm thinking SA might wreck the trend of the host nation always advancing. Certainly, I'd rather take my chances with them as opposed to the rest of the seeded group.
