World-cup-2010-logo-thumb
As all nations completed their second matches last night, the last match being
Spain vs Honduras, only Netherlands and Brazil have actually secured their places in the next round. 14 places are up for grabs for 28 nations, with Uruguay, Mexico, Argentina and Portugal are virtually there based on form, while some big nations (France, England, Italy and Ivory Coast amongst them) are in danger of having to catch the next plane home. Cameroon and North Korea are already out. The teams will slug it out in their next round of matches, and their World Cup 2010 fate will be sealed. Let’s recap the latest standings of the groups, together with the final group matches.
