    Its a good'un!

    I think we have as good a group as we could have hoped for, with only USA likely to cause a little resistance (all being well of course!)

    What are your thoughts?

    Group A - South Africa, Mexico, Uruguay, France

    Group B - Argentina, South Korea, Nigeria, Greece

    Group C - England, USA, Algeria, Slovenia

    Group D - Germany, Australia, Ghana, Serbia

    Group E - Netherlands, Japan, Cameroon, Denmark

    Group F - Italy, New Zealand, Paraguay, Slovakia

    Group G - Brazil, North Korea, Ivory Coast, Portugal

    Group H - Spain, Honduras, Chile, Switzerland

    Yeah not a bad group for us really. We should achieve our aim of losing a quarter final on penalties..

    Group G looks like the toughest group there. Nice that at least one of Brazil, Ivory Coast or Portugal will be going home early.

    As above, they should fly through the group stages. I know it's going to be harder than it sounds but id be happier than if I was a Portugal fan.

    D and G are the hard groups there, italy and spain have basically got byes.

    I hate the whole world cup ceremonial side of things - the draw is just that.... a draw! No need for scripted jokes and making a hollywood actress look dumber than she is by asking off the cuff, non-scripted trivia questions

    Is it weird that I am more worried about playing Ghana than Germany?

    I think we should do well.

    We should win our group, which means we play the runner up of group D. Germany should win that group easily, so we should get someone fairly mediocre and it should be fairly easy up to that point.
