U.S. Will Be One Of Four Seeded Teams For Monday's Draw

The U.S. Women’s National Team will be the top seed in Group C of the 2011 Women’s World Cup. Monday, they’ll learn who else will be in that group.

Host Germany will be the top seed in Group A, Japan is the top seed in Group B and Brazil will be seeded in Group D. The seeds were based on the various teams’ rankings in the confederations in the most recent FIFA rankings.

The remaining 12 teams will be drawn into the various groups. No countries outside of Europe will be in the same group as another team from their confederation. Europe has five teams in the tournament, with two being placed in Group A.

Also representing Europe are England, France, Norway and Sweden. Mexico and Canada will join the U.S. as CONCACAF’s representatives. Australia and North Korea will represent Asia along with Japan. Colombia is South America’s other representative. Nigeria and Equitorial Guinea will represent Africa. New Zealand is Ocean’s lone entry.
