The 2014 World Cup in Brazil kicks-off in 188 days. That's like two-thirds of a pregnancy. Plenty of pre-World Cup banter and excitement will consume all of mankind within the coming months, and today was a big first step for the tournament: the groups were announced, which is basically the equivalent of feeling the baby kick for the first time. How proud FIFA President Sepp Blatter must feel. Now that the groups have been organized, let's take a look at who the major players are in each group, and which unfortunate countries have been drawn into the Group of Death (spoiler: USA is in it) in Predicting the 2014 World Cup Immediately After the World Cup Draw.


Note: Groups have been ordered from easiest to hardest.
