FIFA have Three Countries on Notice for World Cup 2010

FIFA officials confirmed that Sepp Blatter has spoken to three countries who can step in just in case South Africa suffers from a "natural catastrophe." Good thing the press release was in print - I'm sure they would have had a tough time keeping a straight face when they said those words. Clearly South Africa is suffering right now and FIFA isn't about to let this stumble, although time is running out for SAFA.

Of course FIFA would not release which three countries are a part of the now famous "Plan B", but I'm guessing - and I have absolutely zero basis of fact on this - they are England, the United States, and Spain.

They have to be nations with a complete stadium, transportation, and communication infrastructure already in place. Any thoughts?
