BRAZIL - The destiny of the 32 nations including Mexico and USA were revealed today in Brazil in FIFA’s World Cup draw. Both of the North American sides will have tough opposition in the World Cup come next summer in Brazil.

The United States Men’s National Team drew one of the toughest groups in all of the World Cup being placed in Group F with three time World champion Germany, Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal, and the team that eliminated them from the World Cup four years ago in South Africa 2010 Ghana.

El Tri on the other hand did not get as tough as a group as their CONCACAF rivals, but there is still plenty of challenges they will have to face as they once again draw Group A just like four years ago and will face the host nation Brazil. The Mexican National Team will also face Croatia and Cameroon.

Besides Group F where the USMNT will struggle against tough opposition; Group D could also be considered the “Group of Death” where there is seven World Cup trophies between three teams.

Here is how the eight groups will be made up:

Group A: Brazil, Croatia, Mexico, Cameroon

Group B: Spain, Netherlands, Chile, Australia

Group C: Colombia, Greece, Ivory Coast, Japan

Group D: Uruguay, Costa Rica, England, Italy

Group E: Switzerland, Ecuador, France, Honduras

Group F: Argentina, Bosnia, Iran, Nigeria

Group G: Germany, Portugal, Ghana, USA

Group H: Belgium, Algeria, Russia, S. Korea
