The 2010 World Cup

WORKSHEET

A

Exercise 1: Choose the best option among the words in bold to complete the sentences.
1. A total of 32 national / country / selection teams will take part in the World Cup in South Africa.
2. The country where the World Cup takes place is called the house / hotel / host country, and its team
always takes part.
3. If there is a country that most people think is going to win, that country is called the best /
favourite / probable.
4. Most countries in the world, of course, will not be at the World Cup: only those countries that did
well in their eliminatories / qualifying games / little games can take part.
5. No one chooses which teams will play each other in the first stage of the World Cup: instead it is
decided by chance. Small balls with the names of the countries on them are put inside a pot so that
no one can see the names, then someone pulls them out. This is called a sorting / lucky hand /
draw. However, it’s not completely by chance. No one wants the best teams to play each other too
early in the competition, so these teams are kept separate. These teams are called keys / seeds /
favourites (or we can say they are keyed / seeded / favourited).
6. In the World Cup (and many other sports competitions), a game in which the winner immediately
goes on to the next stage and the loser immediately goes out of the competition is called a knock-out
/ killer / life-and-death game.
7. We often say footballers play in one of four positions: goalkeeper, defender, midfielder, or forward /
advanced / fronter.
8. What wins football matches, of course, is marking / scoring / making goals.

The football World Cup, which takes place every four years, begins in South Africa on 11th June.
The first match will take place in the city of Johannesburg at the Soccer City stadium, which can hold
around 95,000 people. Nine other stadiums around the country will also be used, all of them with a
capacity of at least 40,000.
Thirty-two national teams will take part: thirteen from Europe, eight from the Americas (including five
from South America), six from Africa, three from Asia, and two from Oceania. Thirty-one of them had
to do well in qualifying games, between 2007 and 2009, in order to play in the competition; only the
hosts, South Africa, qualified automatically.
In a draw that took place in December 2009, the countries were put into eight groups of four for the first
stage of the tournament. (Eight teams ...
