World Cup draw is set

The United States got what looks to me like a favorable draw, landing in the same group as England, Algeria and Slovenia. ESPN's front page immediately claimed the U.S. got a tough draw, but I don't see how. England is the worst-ranked FIFA team of all the seeded teams (No. 9), and Algeria (28) and Slovenia (33) aren't good. Plus, the U.S. gets its tough game out of the way on the first day and then can focus on beating the other two. Remember, you only have to finish in the top two of your group to advance.

If anyone could complain, it's Group G with Brazil, Ivory Coast and Portugal; That's a tough draw!
