World Cup 2010 groups draw: how the balls dropped
FIFA President Sepp Blatter and a load of balls. Not an uncommon experience but this time it's different as the draw for the World Cup in South Africa takes place.
England have been seeded so know they can't draw the other big boys, namely World Champions Italy, European Champions Spain, five-time winners Brazil, omnipresent Germany, long-haired Argentina, the Netherlands (or Holland as our customers prefer) and...er...South Africa. There are still some scary names in the other pots and the Three Lions could still end up in a group of death.
