World Cup 2014 consisted of 8 groups of 4 teams each. Group A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H.
Prior to the group draw there were World Cup 2014 qualification games. Nations from all over the world competed to qualify for World’s greatest football event in Brazil.
The final draw of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil was announced Friday. Host Brazil will face world No. 16 Croatia in Group A. Only the top two teams of each group advance to the next round.

Germany, Ghana, USA and Portugal will make up Group G, while hosts Brazil have Croatia Mexico andCameroon for company in Group A,
Colombia, Greece, Côte d’Ivoire and Japan, along with Switzerland, Ecuador, Honduras and France, appear to be in wide-open sections.
