June 11th, Opening match – South Africa and Mexico

The group stage for the 2010 World Cup has been drawn, with the World Champions Italy getting a comfortable draw in Group F with Paraguay (threat for 1st place), New Zealand and Slovakia. The hosts South Africa got a very difficult road ahead of them, maybe impossible, with Mexico, Uruguay and the real problem and group favorites – France. The best and most interesting group is probably Group G, with Brazil, the Ivory Coast and Portugal (North Korea aren’t really candidates for qualification).
