The South American country was dealt the C group in a draw defining which teams playing which in one of the most important sporting events of the year.

Because Colombia ended second after Brazil, it was determined to be group leader, meaning it can’t be in the same group as other prominent participants to the tournament.

Also in group C is Ivory Coast, led by the 35-year-old veteran striker Didier Drogba, Greece and Japan.

Colombia’s first match will be on June 14 against Greece.
