The U.S. learned it's draw for the tournament, and its group pairing is brutal. The Yanks will have to take on Japan, Nigeria and the Netherlands if it hopes to make the final eight. Argentina, Brazil and Italy head the other three groups. If this is the base for the 2010 World Cup team, the U.S. will get a stern test to be sure.
Here is the draw:
- USA, Netherlands, Nigeria, Japan
- Argentina, Ivory Coast, Serbia, Australia,
- Brazil, Belgium, China, New Zealand
- Italy, Cameroon, South Korea, Honduras
