3 more spots have been filled, with 2 more to go.

As mentioned, New Zealand is the sole OFC team to go to Canada 2007. As for the others, the CONMEBOL list is complete, having Argentina and Chile going to Canada 2007 as well. In fact, Brazil and Argentina has their soccer teams qualified for both Canada 2007 and Beijing 2008.

As for the 2 spots remaining, it is up to the CONCACAF confederation to fill them and the list is complete.

Canada is in Group A since they are the host country. I also know they are in Group A because they are playing their Opening Game on July 1st (Canada's Day) in Toronto. If you take a look at the schedule Guardian posted, Toronto is the only city outside of Edmonton to host a Group A match. So unfortunately for Montreal, you will not see Canada play during the Group Stage of the tournament.

Today, the final 2 spots for Canada 2007 commences. It will be a battle between Mexico, Costa Rica, St. Kitts & Nevis and Jamaica for those spots. Once they are done, the qualifier list is completed and it will be exactly FIVE DAYS before the Toronto draw to see which team will be in which letter group.

The draw was broadcasted live here in Chile

Chile in the Group A... good group and I believe we have a lot of chances to qualify to the next round.

Matches in Toronto and Edmonton, where live most of the chilean inmigrants. The Marea Roja will invade those cities ;)

Canada isn't in the hardest of group. We can't underestimate anyone, but we still have a very good chance to qualify. And talk about an easy group for Spain!

What a coincidence Portugal lands into Group C with 2 of their 3 games are being played in Toronto where the Portuguese community here is massive.

Mexico can easily qualify at least as a best 3rd; they have high possibilities of making it to the final four, since this is the same squad that won U-17 Championship two years ago in Peru.
