The United States Men's National Team has been drawn into group A with Colombia, Paraguay and Costa Rica for the Copa América Centenario this June.

The Yanks will start the tournament on June 3 at Levi's Stadium against Colombia before facing Costa Rica four days later in Chicago. The team rounds out the group stage with a match-up with Paraguay in Philadelphia on June 11.

The U.S. is 3-11-3 all time against Colombia, according to 11v11.com, with the last meeting taking place in November 2014 in London where the Colombians eked out a 2-1 victory.

The U.S. is 13-14-5 against Costa Rica and has lost the last two meetings against the Ticos. Costa Rica is a team that could make some noise in the tournament; it had a memorable run in the 2014 World Cup, where it made the quarterfinals.

The Americans are 2-2-2 against Paraguay, last playing the South American side in 2011. Just like Costa Rica, the U.S. has lost its last two matches against Paraguay.

Here are the participants in groups B-D:

Group B:

Brazil, Ecuador, Haiti, Peru

Group C:

Mexico, Uruguay, Jamaica, Venezuela

Group D:

Argentina, Chile, Panama, Bolivia
