COSTA DO SAUIPE, Brazil (AP) — One of the worst finals in World Cup history — Spain vs. the Netherlands — will be reprised in one of the first games of the 2014 edition.
Friday's draw proved kind for host nation Brazil.
It also put three former winners — Italy, Uruguay and England — together in one daunting group.
The United States drew one of the shortest straws. Its game schedule will send Jurgen Klinsmann's team pinging around on a 9,000-mile trip across the world's fifth-largest country.
