Sepp Blatter has no worries about South Africa's capability to host the 2010 World Cup. Even though the 2014 World Cup is going to South America, but not mentioning about which nation he would endorse, he has been reported to suggest that Australia be "an option" to host the 2018 World Cup:

Golf course gives way to World Cup stadium

By Melanie Gosling

Cape Town's 2010 World Cup stadium is to be built on the Metropolitan Golf Course on Green Point common, not on the site of the existing stadium.

The stadium location: THIS IS NOT THE STADIUM DESIGN just an indication of its proposed location, size and surrounding podium

Even I agree that's fair enough as well.

Confederations Cup 2009

The tournament will be hosted in five cities and five stadia will be used. four of which are existing and one which will be newly built.

1. Ellis Park, Johannesburg 65,000

2. Loftus Versfeld, Pretoria 55,000

3. Royal Bafokeng, Rusentburg 45,000

4. Free State Stadium, Bloemfontein 46,000

5. Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium 50,000 [New]

The following has been allocated by the National Treasury for the upgrades of stadium 1-4 and the cosntruction of stadiium 5. Do note that the allocation of funds does not include the entire cost of the upgrade or construction of stadia. Each city will need to contribute the difference between the actual cost and the allocation they have received.

Nelson Mandela R0.895bn [NEW]

Ellis Park R229m [MINOR UPGRADE]

Free State R219m [MINOR UPGRADE]

Royal Bafokeng R147m [MINOR UPGRADE]

Loftus R97m [MINOR UPGRADE]

That's true. The attempts of some Australian politicians, officials and media to snatch the World Cup away from South Africa are becoming more and more embarrassing. Now it was New South Wales premier Morris Iemma who fueled that debate once again -- and do you know why? Just because the South African World Cup organisers missed a press conference a couple of days ago!

A press conference which was missed due to urgent talks with FIFA over final stadium funding allocations, and the decision not to use Soccer City as a venue for the Confederationa Cup. I honestly don't believe that Danny Jordaan, who almost single handedly brought the world cup to south africa and who has spent the most of the last 7years of his life dedicated to this world cup including presentations, talks and conferences, would just miss a press conference unless it was for reasons beyond his control.
