SINGAPORE, 31 July 2011: Preliminary Draw for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™

The Preliminary Draw for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ was held in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday 30 July 2011.

Singapore, having defeated Malaysia with a 6-4 aggregate over two legs earlier this month were in Pot 4 of the Asian Qualification Zone (Third Round) along with Thailand, Indonesia, Korea DPR and Lebanon.

Brazil’s legendary Zico along with rising star Lucas from Sao Paolo were on hand to conduct the ASIAN Zone draw and decide the fate of how things would unfold over in third round.

As the draw took shape, Singapore was picked and grouped with China PR, Jordan and Iraq in Group A.

Also in the spotlight was the intercontinental play-off draw which paired Asia’s representative with their South American counterpart while the CONCACAF representative will take on a team from the OCEANIA.

Coach Raddy's concern then would be the congested league fixtures and players' condition come September.
