U.S. WOMEN'S WORLD CUP TEAM HEAD COACH JILL ELLIS SPEAKING TO REPORTERS AFTER DRAW 3.

(SOUNDBITE)(English) U.S HEAD COACH JILL ELLIS SAYING: "Yeah I think it's you know, a good group.

I think it gives us three very different teams, couple teams in there we haven't played a lot so I think it's good and it's a good opening game for us to kind of get the nerves out.

You know I have tremendous respect for these teams, they wouldn't be here if they weren't quality opponents so I'm not pre-judging anything, we gotta get results and we gotta play well to get results." 4.

(SOUNDBITE)(English) SWEDEN HEAD COACH PETER GERHARDSSON SAYING: "I heard about the history (of playing against U.S.) so I know the history but to me it's a new country, to me it's a new team and I'm looking forward so, it's always an experience to meet new teams, for me to meet USA and I know it's one of the world's best, team in the world and…but in the Pot 1 we have meet Canada, we have meet France, we have meet England, so I think it was pretty good to get them (U.S.) and get them in third game, I think that's, we'll see where we are then, hopefully we have two victories and I think USA also gonna have two victories so it's gonna be an interesting game." 6.

CHILE WOMEN'S WORLD CUP TEAM HEAD COACH JOSE LETELIER SPEAKING TO REPORTERS AFTER DRAW 7.

(SOUNDBITE)(Spanish) CHILE HEAD COACH JOSE LETELIER SAYING: "The group we got is pretty tough, seeing that the teams are tough ones for Chile, and facing the current world champions, Sweden is another good team, Thailand is an up and coming team as well, so it will be a tough group for us, but we plan on having a good Cup and hope to advance to the next round." STORY: World champions the United States will be favourites to lift a record fourth Women's World Cup following the draw for next year's tournament on Saturday (December 8), while hosts France play the opening match against South Korea in Paris on June 7.

Jill Ellis' U.S. side, who beat Japan 5-2 in the final to win the World Cup in Canada three years ago, were drawn with Thailand, debutants Chile and 2016 Olympic silver medallists Sweden in Group F.

The U.S. and the Swedes have had tight battles over the years, more recently in the 2016 Olympics when the Europeans knocked out the Americans in the quarter-finals before going on to win silver.

However, their meeting will be in the final match of the group in Le Havre on June 20, meaning both teams may have already secured their passage to the round of 16.

France, who have never gone beyond the World Cup semi-finals, will also face 1995 champions Norway and Nigeria in Group A of the eighth edition of the tournament.

As hosts, they automatically earned the first slot and were picked out by France coach Didier Deschamps who got a rousing reception from the crowd in Paris' Seine Musicale having led the men's side to World Cup triumph in Russia this year.

After recording their best World Cup finish of third in 2015, Phil Neville's England face an opening Group D game against neighbours Scotland in Nice.

They will also face Argentina and Japan, who knocked the Lionesses out at the semi-final stage in Canada, in a tough pool.

Germany, the only country besides Norway, the U.S. and Japan to win the World Cup, face a resurgent China in their Group B opener before taking on Spain and South Africa.

Group C sees Australia face Brazil, once again spearheaded by former player of the year Marta, along with Italy and tournament debutants Jamaica.

European champions the Netherlands will have to get the better of Canada, Cameroon and New Zealand in Group E.

Fifty-two matches will be played across nine stadiums in France, the first time the country has hosted the tournament, from June 7 to July 7 with the final set to take place in the 59,186-capacity Stade de Lyon.

FIFA said almost 200,000 tickets have been sold for the event.

World soccer's ruling body is aiming to have a record one billion viewers for next year's tournament.
