Mexico has been drawn together with Germany, Sweden and Korea Republic at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Juan Carlos Osorio's team will compete in their 16th World Cup and will kick things off against defending champions Germany in the first match of Group F, which takes place in Moscow on Sunday, June 17.

Korea Republic sets up what looks like a difficult group for Mexico when they play on Saturday, June 23 at the Rostov Arena.

Sweden, who beat four-time champions Italy in a World Cup play-off, will be El Tri's final opponent and they will play in Yekaterinburg on Wednesday, June 27.

Elsewhere, hosts Russia were given a rather forgiving group, with Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Uruguay. Amongst CONCACAF rivals, Costa Rica were drawn with favorites Brazil, Switzlerland and Serbia. Meanwhile, Panama’s debut World Cup will feature the likes of Belgium, Tunisia and England.
