World Cup newcomer Iceland was meanwhile handed a match against Lionel Messi and Argentina on June 16, a draw which was described as "romantic" by coach Heimar Hallgrimsson. Let's take a closer look at the bracket.
The Albiceleste should ordinarily be favourites to win Group D involving Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria, but that will entail Messi's support cast - Mauro Icardi, Sergio Aguero, Angel di Maria, Ever Banega, Paulo Dybala - stepping up at the tournament. Nigeria - the youngest team to qualify for the World Cup - beat Argentina 4-2 in a friendly last month.
They'll face off June 15 in their opening game, and the victor likely will go on to win the group and set the stage for progression deep into the knockout phase and perhaps all the way to the final.
Portugal would likely face Nigeria/Croatia/Peru/Denmark in the quarterfinals and Germany/Belgium/England/Colombia in the semifinals.
"I am certainly not scared", Loew told ZDF television.
"To play against Spain, Portugal and Morocco will be a great opportunity for our players to show why they are here and especially to show that they deserve to be here".
For Carlos Queiroz, the head manager of Iranian football team, told beIN Sports that Morocco has a "great" team, recalling his course during the qualifiers. "This is a World Cup".
Five-time champions Brazil will play against Switzerland in Rostov and has further pairings with Costa Rica and Serbia.
France heads Group C, slotted with three teams who needed the playoffs to reach Russia: Australia, Denmark and Peru.
The Socceroos' assistant coach Ante Milicic was optimistic though.
Going into the draw, we knew Russian Federation would get an easy group based on how the pots were set up.
Japan have a tough task to finish in the top two in a group that includes Robert Lewandowski's Poland, Sadio Mane's Senegal and Colombia.
Germany - the second youngest squad - will confront Mexico, which has advanced to the knockout phase in its last six World Cup appearances. But he also conceded: "We just didn't want to get Spain from pot two".
