World Cup 2010 – South Africa

For the first time, ever... the FIFA World Cup comes to Africa. South Africa was chosen as host for this year's tournament in 2004 when they saw off the challenge of both Morocco and Egypt.

Qualifying Stage

Qualifying was a hard slog - when wasn't it? Qualifying started in August 2007 and continued until November 2009. In total 32 teams qualified for the tournament. This included hosts South Africa, who although not required to qualify for the World Cup, were required to do so for the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations and so did play in the Qualifying Stage - they failed to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations! Holders Italy were required to qualify too - and they did, being one of Europe's 13 Qualifiers.

List of Qualifiers

Group Stage

Including the hosts 32 teams qualified and will be split into 8 groups of four. With matches staring on 11 June and running until 25 June, the top two in each group will advance to the Round of 16.
