    Its the Inter-continental cup... continental champs only
    plus the current world champs.

    Europe is represented by Italy and Spain
    Africa has Egypt and Sth Africa
    Asia has Irag
    Nth and Central Am is USA
    Sth Am is Brasil
    Oceania is NZ

    It is an awesome world promotion for the game with an air of the Hong Kong Sevens or a F1 Grand Prix.. The chance for us lesser countries to see some of the big boys play even is Spain Italy and Brasil usually don't send all their big guns.. they are still held in awe.

    We did well in Sth America last time and hope to get at some good goals against much classier opposition. SA will run this brilliantly and will shine with the WC in 2010.

    Ireland did win their qualifier for the WC last month.. alas we wimped against Fiji. Aus beat Bahrain and would be fav to get to WC from down under again.

    i know, i was just getting at him because of the date he stated. it seems we missed it by 3 years

    the thing that i hope for in the 2010 world cup is that the locals are not priced out of going to games. what happened at the last cricket WC in the west indies was shocking.
