World Cup 2010 qualifying draw

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

The draw for the qualifying stages of World Cup 2010 has taken place and sees England facing Croatia who recently ended England’s Euro 2008 hopes. Wales have a difficult group to contend with as they face Germany and Russia.

England once again take on Croatia who recently topped England’s Euro 2008 qualifying group and also took six points from England across the two legs. Croatia are also the only team in the World Cup 2010 qualifying group who are currently higher in the FIFA World Rankings, 2 places above England in 10th position.

Wales face a difficult challenge and will realistically be looking to take points off Russia and Finland and aim for second place behind Germany to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1958.

Wales (Group Four)

Germany, Russia, Finland, Azerbaijan and Liechtenstein

England (Group Six)

Croatia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Andorra
