By Mike Collett COSTA DO SAUIPE, Brazil (Reuters) - - Hosts Brazil will get the ball rolling against Croatia, holders Spain face 2010 runners-up Netherlands and U.S. coach Juergen Klinsmann is up against compatriots Germany after Friday's World Cup draw. For a few hours at least the problems concerning stadium construction, infrastructure costs, and civil unrest surrounding the staging of next year's World Cup were forgotten as soccer took center stage in the north-eastern holiday resort in Bahia. The first is Group B which features world and European champions Spain, their final opponents from four years ago the Netherlands, the dangerous Chile and the whipping boys from Australia, at 59 the lowest ranked team in the tournament. The other gruelling-looking quartet involves three teams who have won the World Cup seven times between them - South American champions Uruguay (two titles), Italy (4) and England (1) - plus the unpredictable Costa Rica in Group D. England and Italy will meet in their opening match in Manaus, in the heart of the Amazon jungle on June 14.
