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
10:00 AM EDT = 3:00 PM BST = 12:00 AM AEST (+1 day)

    You crazy. Germany has a lack of experience on the field. Also, Argentina is going to be explosive.

    Man i was really dissapointed in Argentina this afternoon. They scored one goal from a corner against a Nigerian team who has absolutely no clue how to defend. I expected a lot more.

    The Nigerian keeper played out of his mind, he robbed Messi at least twice and he some other great saves.

    I was tempted to find a Stars and Stripes to hang out my window, but was afraid I would be lynched.

    A brick through the window probably!

    Absolutley the keeper was great. But for a team with players of Argentinas quality I expected a lot more pressure against a poor side. I think their back four look slow and shaky too.

    Also I feel like everyone should be forewarned that the referee for this match is notoriously incompetent and/or crooked (no one is sure which).

    He was recently suspended for six months in his home country of Brazil.


    Thats the man FIFA has picked to officiate this match.

    Im quite looking forward to this game. As much as I tease my English buddies, I think they have an incredible group of players. However the USA are clearly a really tough hard working team, and ive yet to see a convincing performance from England in the friendlies leading up to the tournament.
