Top-ranked U.S. in 'very strong group'

The United States wound up with what could be the toughest group at next summer's Women's World Cup, drawing North Korea, Colombia and Sweden.

The top-ranked Americans were the last team to qualify for the 16-nation tournament, beating Italy in a home-and-home playoff Saturday after being stunned by Mexico in the semifinals of regional qualifying.

Still, the U.S. is a top seed, as are two-time defending champion Germany, Japan and Brazil.

"It's good because it's a very strong group. That's the best thing that could happen to us," U.S. coach Pia Sundhage said.
