Today's World Cup draw in South Africa turned out to be a great one for the USA, as they have been matched up with England, Algeria and Slovenia. The USA has never played Algeria or Slovenia, and they pulled one of the World Cup's biggest upsets in 1950 against England.
A second round berth looks like a definite possibility for the Americans. They will open the World Cup Finals against England in Rustenberg on June 12th. The US will play Slovenia on June 18th and Algeria on June 23rd. South Africa will open the tournament on June 11th against Mexico.
Looks like the infamous "Group of Death" is Group G: Brazil, North Korea, Ivory Coast, Portugal.

South Africa, Mexico, Uruguay, France
Argentina, Nigeria, South Korea, Greece
England, United States, Algeria, Slovenia
