Brazil looks to have lucked out. (weakest pot 1, weakest pot 4, and Italy)

USA draws Chile.

California. Duh.
The draw isn't so much about the chances of advancing, due to 16 of the 24 teams going to the knockout stage. It's more about how the bracket for those knockout rounds look.

Sweden always gives Jill Ellis fits though, but I'll take it. Wonder if they rest any players, honestly I'd consider resting Alex and Carli v. Sweden 1st half, since they have a history of rough play against us.
