If France goes through, they are likely to play in Switzerland in a repeat of last year's QF.
If they get to the SF, they'll play away to either Netherlands, Czech Republic or Spain.
The Dutch got the easyest draw, at home to Canada, and should look forward to a meeting with Czech Republic (home) or Spain (away) in the QF.
If Switzerland gets back to the SF, they'll play Netherlands or Spain at home, but away to Czech Republic.

Australia meet Sweden in a repeat of last year's QF. Another whitewash for the Aussies is likely. In the QF, Australia is likely to play at home to USA.
If Russia and Argentina get through tricky away matches to Belarus and Morrocco respectively, they will meet for the 3rd year in a row, this time in Russia. If the Russians go through to the SF, they'll have home advantage against either Australia or USA. If Argentina gets back to the SF, they could play Australia away or USA at home.
USA has a tall order, with any encounter after their 1st round match aginst Austria likely to be on the road.
