MADRID (AP) - While the eyes of the football world were focused on Brazil for the World Cup draw, Cristiano Ronaldo caught up on his beauty sleep.

Ronaldo says he did not watch Friday's draw, when his native Portugal were placed alongside Germany, Ghana, and the United States in Group G, because he was sleeping.

Ronaldo says Portugal would not look beyond group play: "If we reach the knockout stage, we'll see."

Six Real Madrid internationals who will be at next year's tournament shared their views of the draw on Sunday, including Spain captain Iker Casillas.

Casillas says the defending champion faces a tough task with the Netherlands, Chile, and Australia in Group B.

Casillas disagreed with Fifa's methodology for determining coefficients for the draw, saying "all we can do is go there and try to win".
