2010 World Cup Qualifying:

Getting to host has its benefits as South Africa automatically qualifies for the event due to the fact it is hosting. Still, South Africa has been playing well heading into the event as it finished fourth in the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup, losing to Spain in extra time in the third-place game.

Betting Analysis:

South Africa will be in Group A of the World Cup, joining Mexico, Uruguay, and France. While France is the favorite to win the group, South Africa could find a way to reach the round of 16 by beating Mexico and Uruguay. With its recent play, taking Brazil and Spain to the limit, it is conceivable that South Africa could do something special in this tournament. Add to that that it will have the fan support clearly on its side, and the World Cup could be memorable for South Africa.
