Pick a Pot!

With the FIFA U-20 World Cup Draw just a day away, FIFA has announced the different pots that the 24 countries will be drawn from. Each of the six groups will be made up of one team from each pot at tomorrow's draw in Luxor, Egypt. Because every champion of the event has come from either Europe or South America, the champions of those two confederations (Brazil and Germany) are seeded, along with the hosts. Seeded teams will be distinguished with different colored balls. Here are the pots:

Pot 1: Egypt (seeded), Ghana, Cameroon, Nigeria, South Africa, Brazil (seeded)
Pot 2: Paraguay, Uruguay, Venezuela, Costa Rica, USA, Honduras,
Pot 3: UAE, Uzbekistan, Korea Republic, Australia, Trinidad and Tobago, Tahiti,
Pot 4: Germany (seeded), Italy, Czech Republic, Hungary, Spain, England

As you can see, the possibilities are virtually endless... stay tuned to tomorrow afternoon for results and reaction!

OK, We're in a tough group vs Germany, Camaroon and Korea. I'l say it now, are Jozy and Freddy going to Egypt? I think they better or we might not make it out of the first round.
