World Cup champions Spain have a tough draw in Group B, they play Netherlands in the opening match before a potential banana skin against Chile. Australia make up the quartet and are the group outsiders. The pressure is on the holders to qualify as winners with the likelihood of Brazil waiting for the runners up in the Second Round.

Spain retain the playing style that has helped them dominate world football for the past six years, solid in defence, magical in midfield, their achilles heel may be up front. The first two matches will be telling but Spain can bring their big-stage experience to bear and justify odds-on favouritism to finish group winners.
Netherlands were beaten in extra-time against Spain in the 2010 World Cup final and having cruised through qualification are decent value at around 3/1 to win Group B, but the safer bet might be to plump on the Dutch to qualify at a shade of odss-on. Like Spain, they'll need to be on their guard against a dangerous Chile side containing Barcelona's world class striker, Alexis Sanchez.
Australia were very erratic during qualification and look too short on quality to trouble their rivals.
Group B games will be played at Salvador, Cuiaba, Rio De Janeiro, Porto Alegre, Curitiba and Sao Paulo
