Is it still expected to take place in South Africa, or are they too far behind in getting the infrastructure built?

Sepp Blatter is insistent that WC 2010 is going to be in South Africa, barring a major catastrophe.

Cheers JaredL. The whole CONCACAF thing has confused the hell out of me for years. Just seemed very random with all the groups, leagues, matches and what not. They described how Trinidad&Tobago qualified at the last world cup and I was really stupified by the organisation

On an unrelated note boo you and your avatar (See Loc)

I'm pretty happy with Scotland's draw. Holland haven't been anything special, and hopefully they won't improve much in the next year or so. There were much stronger teams than Norway in pot 3 that I'm glad we've avoided (especially Serbia), and I'm fairly confident of taking 12 points from our fixtures with Iceland and Macedonia.

A couple of years from now I hope I'm not looking back at this post wondering how I could be so over-confident.

"The format for the European qualifying competition for the FIFA World Cup 2010 was decided upon and will consist of eight groups of six teams, and one group of five. The nine group winners will qualify directly and the best eight runners-up will play home and away play-off matches for the remaining four places. The nine groups containing the 53 UEFA member associations will be competing for the 13 places made available to Europe in the final tournament."
