Shamelessly stolen from another site I frequent, as I hadn't heard who had qualifed for it before today.

Qualified Nations;

Brazil - as hosts

Spain - as 2010 World Cup Winners

Japan - as 2011 AFC AsianCup Winners

Mexico - as 2011 Concacaf Gold Cup Winners

Uruguay - as 2011 Copa America Winners

TBD - 2012 Euro Winners

TBD - 2013 African Cup of Nations Winners

and the final spot is awarded to

Tahiti - as 2011 OFC Nations Cup Winners

:D

TAHITI! **** awesome. Only have a couple of players who play outside French Polynesia, and they're both at amateur level. What a wonderful story. Imagine if a side like that or Vanuatu made it past the OFC play-offs and qualified for the World Cup! Great stuff.

i read New zealand lost their last qualifier to New Caledonia so its not past Tahiti or Vanuatu to make the play-offs

:shock:

The only team to leave WC 2010 undefeated lost to a rag-tag band of semi-professionals?

It's a bullshit tournament though, isnt it? Its like the charity shield stretched out over sixteen games.

It's a pretty good idea for a tournament.

World Cup hosts + World Cup holders + Champions of each continent

I think it could be an incredibly useful tournament, especially for a side in semi-transition, like England :winkold:

You mean the European champions? ;)
