They are South Africa, Spain, Brazil, Argentina, Netherlands, Germany, Italy and England, thereby they avoid each other in the group stages. The 32 qualifiers have been split into 4 pots and will be drawn into 8 groups, the pots are shown below:





things you need to know:
  • the seeded teams (pot 1) were decided by their october 2009 fifa ranking
  • pot 2 is composed of teams from Asia, North, Central America and the Carribean and Oceania
  • pot 3 will include teams from Africa and South America
  • pot 4 is the remaining european teams
  • each of the 8 groups will have a team from Pot 1, 2, 3 and 4.
  • Geographical criteria will also be used for the draw, meaning that, with the exception of European teams, no two countries from the same federation can be drawn together.
