The USA was also drawn with South American champion Brazil and China in Group B at Saturday's draw held at Montreal’s Windsor Hotel.

The USA will open against Germany Aug. 5 in Edmonton and play Brazil three days later there before moving on to Montreal to close out group play against China, which it faced twice this week in friendlies in Florida.
