After the recent round of Qualifying Matches for the 2010 World Cup, Fours Nations have booked their place for the 2010 World Cup to be held in South Africa.
Netherlands became the first European nation to qualify for the World Cup. Playing in a relatively easier group the Dutch have won all of their Qualifying encounters. With the 2-1 win at Iceland on 6th June they cemented their berth.
Australia also booked a place in the mega soccer event for the second time drawing their world cup qualifying tie with Qatar. Australian defense has been quite remarkable during all of their qualifying matches but it is yet to be tested against the other European and South American giants.
Japan qualified for the World Cup 2010 for the second time beating Uzbekistan by a lone goal from Shinji Okazaki. Japan came second after Australia in the Group 1 of the Asian Qualifiers owing to a poor goal difference.
South Korea will be making their seventh consecutive appearance in the World Cup following their complete 2-0 victory over UAE. The Koreans didn’t lose any game and have scored all high 11 goals in their march to the World Cup.
