The stage for the World Cup Draw
We skipped last week’s Friday 5 in honor of Thanksgiving. Now we’re back with the first all-soccer Friday 5 in honor of today’s World Cup Draw from South Africa. So far all we know are the teams who won’t be playing the United States in next Summer’s competition, which are Australia, Japan, Korea DPR, Korea Republic, Honduras, Mexico and New Zealand. These are things we had already assumed but are now official.
The top seven seeds plus the hosts will be placed at the top of each of the groups and the rest are divided into separate “pots” based on location. You can read about it here. Each tournament there is the “Group of Death” which contains one of the top contenders plus the first team left out of the top flight and a decent team from one of the other pots. Four years ago, the US had the privilege of playing 3rd ranked Czech Republic, the eventual champions Italy, and African upstart Ghana. Hopefully, that doesn’t happen again.
Anyway, I’ll be counting down what I feel are the Top 5 Contenders for the FIFA World Cup.
