Record 204 teams enter for 2010 World Cup

 
ZURICH, March 30 (Reuters) - A record 204 countries have entered the qualifying competition for the 2010 World Cup finals, FIFA said in a statement on Friday.

The number beats the previous record of 199 teams which entered for the 2002 World Cup finals and only Bhutan, Brunei, Laos and the Philippines have not registered to take part.

The number of entrants for 2010 includes host nation South Africa and Montenegro, which became the 53rd member of UEFA in January and is expected to be admitted as the 208th member of FIFA at the world governing body's Congress in Zurich in May.

The qualifying competition starts in August 2007 with the Oceania confederation using matches played in the South Pacific Games as a preliminary qualifying tournament for their region.

South Africa have automatically qualified as hosts for the finals which begin on June 11, 2010 with the final scheduled for July 11.

Of the 31 places available for the qualifiers, 13 will go to European teams and five will be taken by African qualifiers.

Playoffs will determine the exact number of qualifiers from the other confederations with Asia providing either four or five qualifiers, CONCACAF three or four, South America four or five and Oceania either none or one.

Asia and Oceania teams will meet in one playoff while South American and CONCACAF teams play in the other.

 ;D ;D Someone scared of the South American teams already.

The qualifying competition starts in August 2007 with the Oceania confederation using matches played in the South Pacific Games as a preliminary qualifying tournament for their region.

The above Oceania format will likely be use during the 2007 Digicel Cup to qualify CFU teams for the preliminary stages of the 2010 World Cup qualifiers.

nice ah love it( ah tek ah borrow andre)   so USA and MExico hav d 1st two places ( 9/10 times) can we beat costa rica for the 3rd spot? and can JA make it out of the group stages?

does any1 know how they come up with which teams are placed in which group? is there some sort of seeding? or does there exist a possibility where d top 3 teams in concacaf can  be placed in the same group which would mean one of them gets eliminated.
seek ye 1st the kingdom of God & his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you

Jersey Trini & Arrow. Did you see the local-based Reggae Boyz that won the Lunar Cup, lost to Switzerland and drew with Panama (Luton Shelton & Bibi Gardner being the only 2 overseas Reggae Boyz). Those teams are not the official Reggae Boyz squad. Bora has just started to skim the tip of the iceberg.  ;D
Trust me. When Bora makes it official even T&T will start quaking in their boots.  ;D ;D  :beermug:
