Automatic qualifiers for Soccer World Cup 2010

Only South Africa, as the host nation, automatically qualified (the defending champion, Italy, no longer automatically qualified). When it comes to the World Cup and predicting who may win, one needs to ignore the form guide and pay attention to history. Spain and Germany may be the rage when it comes to online betting, but no European side has ever won the World Cup away from Europe. History suggests another South American triumph. It also points to an African side making the semi-finals for the first time.
