I know there's an Everything Soccer thread, but thought the World Cup deserved it's own place. If the mods disagree feel free to merge.

We are less two hours away from the draw. I can almost see Sepp Blatter on stage surrounded by Carnival dancers for 35 minutes until we get to the actual draw.

Pots are listed below.

•Pot 1: Brazil, Spain, Germany, Argentina, Colombia, Belgium, Uruguay and Switzerland
•Pot 2: Chile, Ecuador, Algeria, Cameroon, Ghana, Ivory Coast and Nigeria
•Pot 3: Australia, Iran, Japan, Republic of Korea, Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico and USA
•Pot 4: Portugal, Italy, Netherlands, Greece, England, Croatia, France, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Russia

Could see several "Groups of Death" drawn today.

Lets hope our group is Switzerland, Algeria, and Greece

From your mouth to God's ears. That definitely looks better than Brazil/Spain/Argentina/Germany, Ghana/Ivory Coast, Italy/Netherlands/England/France.

Although I wouldn't hate getting another shot at Ghana.

That's truly ideal, but my realistic hope is to stay away from brazil and argentina in pot 1, chile and ivory coast in pot 2, and Portugal and the dutch in pot 4.

The three teams I want no part of are Argentina, Germany, and Brazil. The next tier of teams I'd rather not play are Spain and Belgium. I would be cool with Colombia, Switzerland, or Uruguay.

So give us 1 of:
Colombia, Switzerland, Uruguay
Ecuador, ALgeria, Cameroon
Greece, Croatia, Russia

I definitely think we are better than all those teams, maybe Uruguay is a little better than the USMNT.

Please, please, please, no group of death

Greece and USA are my squads, hoping for a good draw. Is this being shown live on tv?

I wouldn't mind getting England again and booting them in the group stage.

Whoever is in charge of the VbPlaza, can we get an updated list of World Cup teams to purchase icons? Greece wasn't in the 06 Cup and that's the only one available right now.

While I think we would advance, I want no part of Belgium. They have a really good, young team. Not necessarily this World Cup, but I can see them contending in 2018.

We can beat Ghana. We can. Portugal is a very beatable squad, too. I just don't wanna have to deal with CR7 obviously. No one is beating Germany in this group...

Two years of Qualifying to have ping pong balls decide your fate. Sweet system.
