When teams play for a draw in football, it’s rarely something you want to sit through for 90 minutes.

Tomorrow I predict a draw, and I’m 110% sure I’ll be right, but I’m gonna watch anyway.


Because (a) it’s going to take only a few minutes,Β  (b) it’s the first of several draws for Singapore 2010, and (c) it’s not actually a football match.


It’s this kind of draw:

Win, lose... or draw!

Who will it be...

So it’s 6 teams split into 2 groups of 3 for the Men’s and Women’s events, and this is who’s playing.

For the Men’s event:

Do you know which flag is which? :)

Clockwise from top left: Bolivia, Montenegro, Vanuatu, a team from the Americas, Zimbabwe and Singapore!

No, there isn’t a new country ruled by the Riddler. It’s a question mark because the representative for the Americas hasn’t been confirmed yet. πŸ™‚

For the Women’s event:

Clue: http://bit.ly/aKUOAv

Do you know these flags? πŸ™‚

Ok, I’m going to make this a little more interesting. Anyone who can get tell me who these flags represent (for the Women’s event) gets a limited edition “99 days to go” pin (while stocks last!). Post your answer as a comment and make sure you leave your email address.

Victor and I will be on site tomorrow to tweet the draw results LIVE from the event, so follow @singapore2010 on Twitter. Action starts from 11.00am (GMT +8) on May 18th.


UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who submitted your answers for the contest, but I got it wrong, so all of you got it wrong. (Ooops!) Iran’s been reinstated to the Women’s event, and Thailand won’t be in the draw. Anyway, pins are going out to all of you anyway. πŸ™‚ Thanks for taking part!

Welcome back, Iran!

Welcome back!
