GERMANY
The German National Team is the most consistent side in the world. The DFB Eleven have reached the World Cup semifinals an unprecedented 11 times, including three world championships. Michael Ballack, Philipp Lahm and Miroslav Klose are prepared to add that tally (Worldsoccershop.com Summer 2010 Magazine)

Germany Provisional Squad

Hans-Jorg Butt, Manuel Neuer, Tim Wiese

Defenders: Per Mertesacker, Heiko Westermann, Philipp Lahm, Jerome Boateng, Andrea Beck, Arne Friedrich, Serdar Tasci, Marcell Jansen, Holger Badstuber, Dennis Aogo.

Midfielders: Michael Ballack, Sami Khedira, Piotr Trochowski, Marko Marin, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Christian Trasch, Mesut Ozil, Toni Kroos.

AUSTRALIA
The Asia Confederation isn’t strong historically, but Australia’s romp through AFC qualifying was impressive nonetheless. The Socceroos conceded just one goal and qualified undefeated. Could this be a sign of things to come in South Africa? (Worldsoccershop.com Summer 2010 Magazine)

Provisional Squad
Goalkeepers: Adam Federici (Reading/England), Eugene Galekovic (Adelaide Utd), Brad Jones (Middlesbrough/England), Mark Schwarzer (Fulham/England),

SERBIA
Serbia went winless in a disappointing 2006 World Cup effort. The White Eagles bounced back in World Cup qualifying, topping their group with strong defense and plenty of goals. If you expect the Serbs to fizzle out of the 2010 World Cup, you’ll probably get disappointed (worldsoccershop.com Magazine Summer 2010)
