The 32 teams participating in FIFA World CupTM,  discovered their fate this weekend when the Final Draw for South Africa 2010 took place in Cape Town.

Though most people will hope to see South Africa go far in the 2010 FIFA World CupTM, Bafana Bafana may have to work there ‘togos’ off to make it to the next round. Bafana Bafana will open the tournament against Mexico and will then have to face two-time champions Uruguay as well as 2006 runners-up France. Shu! I keep having flashbacks of our recent game against Iceland and wondering if any of this is possible, there is however cause for optimism that the side can continue the record of every FIFA World Cup host getting at least to the second round.

Here is how the draw panned out for the rest of the teams
