The World Cup draw pots were announced on Tuesday, ahead of the main event itself scheduled for three days later. A quick scan of the names in each seeding group already throws up some tantalising possibilities for the first round of Brazil 2014.
With most of the groups decided by geography, Pot 3 covers two continents: North America and Asia.
Neither region has yet yielded a World Cup winner, but they are two areas of the globe where football has seen huge gains in popularity over the last 20 years.
So who are the big names to watch out for and who represents a slightly easier match-up? Here, the eight competitors from Pot 3 are introduced and ranked by their ability to cause an upset in Brazil.
