World Cup Draw: Cape Town

Cape Town Draw

The World Cup Draw was held in Cape Town to determine the groups that will play each other in the June international football tournament in South Africa. Held every four years, the World Cup is one of sport’s most universal and exciting events. Each tournament the group with the hardest teams in it is called the “Group of Death” and this year there are two rightful heirs to that title. One of the marquee matchups this year is the group featuring the USA and England, but they should face little trouble against Algeria and Slovenia, making this a group to watch, but not as feared as two of the others.

Group of Death

Group G gets this year’s Group of Death title, as it features two of the top five teams in the world: Brazil and Portugal. The Ivory Coast are also a part of this group for the second straight year and the second ranked Africans should once again find it difficult to move out of their group. Rounding out the group is the North Korean DPR team who are in the World Cup for the first time since 1966. Look for Brazil and Portugal to come out of this one, but look out for the Ivory Coast to make a strong push with Didier Drogba leading their strikeforce.

Group of Death Runner-Up

Group B is another to watch out for with Argentina, Nigeria, South Korea and Greece all keen to move on to the next stage. With unpredictable Diego Maradona managing the Argentine team no one is guaranteed to make it out of this group. Greece, the 2004 European Champions, and the South Korean team (4th in World Cup 2002) should also make strong cases to progress and Nigeria are no slouches as they showed in a 1-0 friendly victory over France back in June of this year.

    Hey people!! So I have been doing karate for more than a year now and I wanna start doing gymnastics. You see karate costs a lot of money and my mum and dad have spent about $1,000 on me. Plus my older bro does karate too so that's even more money wasted. I used to like it but now it kinda sucks. My parents are going to let me try gymnastics for a few classes and then they will let me decide what to do. So what should I do?! All my friends and Youtubers do it and I like doing it too cos I can do lot's of things like cartwheel, splits, handstand, round off and so much more. I know this isn't cheerleading but it's close topic and I just need some help!!  Have a lovely day, Oki101  :/
