I was right, we are in Pot 4:
The 2010 World Cup qualifying draw for UEFA will be conducted in Durban, South Africa on Sunday. Croatia are placed in Pot 1, meaning they will avoid teams like: Italy, Spain, Germany, Czech Republic, France, Portugal, Netherlands and Greece.
Qualifying begins in August 2008, and this qualifying cycle will have a different system than the Euro qualifiers. Firstly, there are 9 groups, 8 of them will have 6 teams, one will only have 5. The group winners go to the World Cup directly while the best 8 second placed teams will play in a playoff, meaning 4 will qualify via playoffs, meaning UEFA will send 13 teams, quite low in my opinion!
Here is the full list of teams in the WC qualifying draw
- Czech Republic
- Northern Ireland
- Faroe Islands
- San Marino
