Draw Procedure

Hosts South Africa will be automatically positioned as A1; the other seeded teams will be drawn into the other groups B-H, but will always be in position “1” of their group

Groups will be drawn from A to H and the positions in the group will be drawn for Pots 2 to 4

Geographical criteria will also be respected, meaning that no two teams from the same confederation will be drawn in the same group (except European teams, where a maximum of two will be in a group). For example, South Africa cannot play the African teams from Pot 3 and Argentina and Brazil cannot be drawn against the three remaining South American teams.

Thus, Pot 1 will be drawn first in order from B to H. Then Pot 2 will be drawn from A to H.

Pot 3 brings up geographic clashing prevention, thus the first two African teams drawn will be placed into the Groups headed by Brazil and Argentina. The first South American team to be drawn from Pot 3 will be placed in Group A with South Africa.

Pot 4 will be drawn from A to H, geographic clash prevention is overlooked in the case of European teams.

Below is the entire World Cup group rounds schedule, with times posted in Eastern time and the appropriate US TV station.

Since I know that there are many PA readers in the UK and Australia, here's how to translate:
EDT is UTC-4
British Summer Time is UTC+1
Australian EST is UTC+10

So for each common start time:
7:30 AM EDT = 12:30 PM BST = 9:30 PM AEST

    "USA fans may hate the Mexican national team and Mexican fans, but the hatred doesn't really go both ways. I've met so many Mexico fans who say they are rooting for the United States as their second team. Many of them live in the United States, but even some Mexicans from Mexico go out of their way to root for the USA. Whether it's because more USA success makes the losses by Mexico to the USA more easy to explain, or whether it's respect, I've been impressed. I won't tell USA fans to return the favor because I know the emotions run deep, but it's something to think about."

    I totally didn't notice that till now. I guess I'll have to have one game on the tv and the other on the computer. The sound of dual vuvuzuela's may cause my brain to liquify though.

    Anelka gave Domenech some grief at half time during the Mexico game and was sent home.
    On Sunday the French squad refused to train (because Anelka was sent home without consulting the squad) and the French captain, Patrice Evra, had a go at the French fitness coach and had to be physically restrained from going after him, there are some videos on youtube. :) The fitness coach then threw his id away as he stormed away from Evra, presumably to keep Evra from killing him, and has left the French camp (as far as I know).

    Domenech has since released a statement, from the players, that they are ready to get on with the tournament.


    That's the gist of what's going on anyway.

    Hand ball IN THE BOX that led to a goal that put Ireland out of the world cup. I think Thierry Henry basically stole my ticket to the world cup. What's worse Ireland had completely outplayed France in that game.

    It still hurts.

    Is there some summary of what's going on with France?

    Anelka gave Domenech some grief at half time during the Mexico game and was sent home.
    On Sunday the French squad refused to train (because Anelka was sent home without consulting the squad) and the French captain, Patrice Evra, had a go at the French fitness coach and had to be physically restrained from going after him, there are some videos on youtube. :) The fitness coach then threw his id away as he stormed away from Evra, presumably to keep Evra from killing him, and has left the French camp (as far as I know).

    Domenech has since released a statement, from the players, that they are ready to get on with the tournament.


    That's the gist of what's going on anyway.
    Actually it was the coach that had to be restrained~

    Also Mexico and Uruguay are gunna tie and South Africa is going to pull a last minute winner and it'll be so sad.

    Then someone will blow a vuvuzela and it'll be far less sad.

    it's true, being french exacerbates the problems.

    It's that way for all the games. It's so one set of teams doesn't have an advantage over the other.

    I totally didn't notice that till now. I guess I'll have to have one game on the tv and the other on the computer. The sound of dual vuvuzuela's may cause my brain to liquify though.

    See this problem right here? This is the sole greatest reason I have found to use my Picture-In-Picture.

    Im excited about the Uruguay Mexico game! Both teams have looked real slick. Hopefully it should be a good matchup.

    Though I would be happy with a 0-0 draw just to see France out.

    I'm so far responsible for north korea's drubbing, germany's loss, silva being dropped by spain and both of New Zealand's points

    I'd blame myself for England, too, but it's more fun to blame John Terry for that
