World Cup draw: England avoid Spain and Brazil

The Final Draw will be held Friday, Dec. 4, in Cape Town, South Africa, and will air live at 12 p.m. ET on ESPN2 and live at 11 a.m. ET on Univision
As the eighth seed, England will avoid Spain and Brazil, the top two seeds in the group stage as well as Germany, Netherlands, current holders Italy, Argentina (yes, that Maradona belly flop was a bad dream), and South Africa (a bit laughable but that is one of the perks of being hosts).
FIFA used the October rankings to make the determination.
France and Portugal missed out as fifth and seventh seed because of their difficulties in getting to the World Cup.
The USA finds itself in Pot 2 with fellow CONCACAF nations Mexico and Honduras. Which means that they will not be part of the same group.
Pot 1 (seeds): South Africa, Brazil, Spain, Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Argentina, England
Pot 2 (Asia, Oceania and North/Central America): Japan, South Korea, North Korea, Australia, New Zealand, United States, Mexico, Honduras
Pot 3 (Africa and South America): Ivory Coast, Ghana, Cameroon, Nigeria, Algeria, Paraguay, Chile, Uruguay
Pot 4 (Europe): France, Portugal, Slovenia, Switzerland, Greece, Serbia, Denmark, Slovakia
