Colombia is now a 20-1 favourite to win the World Cup after being put into a group with Greece, Ivory Coast, Japan. Before the draw, they were listed at 22-1.

Spain, which must play the Netherlands in their first match, also dropped from 13-2 to 7-1. The Netherlands also face longer odds, going from 25-1 to 20-1.
