    Ivory Coast have a few good players but I very much doubt they'll get any points, unless they get a very poor group.

    The others, Angola and Togo, will struggle severely. I'd be surprised if either of them score a goal - and not remotely surprised if one of them loses a game 7/8/9/10-0.

    None of them have any experience of football outside Africa, though, so that sets them apart from Senegal - most of Senegal's side played in France, at a far higher level.

    If they keep their current system then we are 5th - however they'll probably work out the system that selects the 8 sides they want to be top seeds...

    That is true, but how many of the South Korean players played outside Korea in the last World Cup. I think they will be competive, Angola would be the team i would be worried about, but they did beat some decent sides to qualify.

    Lucky escape? They dominated the whole game from half-time onwards. If anything, it was a lucky escape for Uruguay to be given the chance to win it in a shootout.

    You took your time Australia.

    Well done anyway, I suppose something had to go right for you this year sporting-wise
    Or something.

    Park Ji-Sung, Lee Young-Pyo, Cha Doo-Ri, Hong Myung-Bo, and Lee Dong-Kook all had experience of European leagues, IIRC. Togo and Angola don't have anyone between them I don't think - although if my Champ Manager experience serves, there might be an Angolan striker who played a bit in Portugal a couple of seasons ago (his name might be Mantorras, not sure). Even so, hardly what you'd call experience. They'll probably give someone a hard time for 20 minutes, then concede and capitulate 4- or 5-0 on at least one occasion.

    Go T&T! Be nice to have another cricketing nation in the WC.

    Give much for the Norwayenese chances later, BTW? Looks a stiff ask to me.

    Who's for a football tournament among the 10 Test-playing nations? England v Bangladesh at footy might actually be a bigger mismatch than the cricket version! I can just imagine that:

    England 38 (Rooney 17, Owen 12, Lampard 4, Beckham 3, Campbell, Gerrard)
    Bangladesh 0

    Almost reads like a scorecard from a match played at Headingley in the 1920s.
