Kevin Prince Boateng will come face to face with his brother Jerome Boateng for a second straight World Cup as Ghana drew Germany in Friday's Brazil World Cup 2014 draw.

In another interesting twist, Ghana drew the USA for the second time, after being drawn in the same group in 2006. Their meeting next summer will mean Ghana meets the Americans for three consecutive tournaments.

It got even more interesting, as the last team to be drawn into Ghana's group (G) was non other than the country with arguably this year's best player in the world, Portugal.

The Draw was staged at Costa do Sauipe, on the Costa dos Coqueiros, an impressive location in the State of Bahia, 76 kilometres north of its capital, Salvador, and was conducted by FIFA General Secretary Jerome Valcke.

Below are all eight groups in full.
Group A : Brazil, Cameroon, Mexico, Croatia
Group B : Spain, Chile, Australia, Netherlands
Group C : Colombia, Cote d'Ivoire, Japan, Greece
Group D : Uruguay, Italy, Costa Rica, England
Group E : Switzerland, Ecuador, Honduras, France
Group F : Argentina, Nigeria, Iran, Bosnia Herzegovina

Group G : Germany, Ghana, USA, Portugal
