2014 FIFA World Cup draw generator

Here's an e-mail I've got from Daniel Nordquist:

I love the expectation that always comes when the draws for the World Cup or UEFA Championship are closing up. I have made a simple page on my domain that randomizes the draw and I am willing to share this opportunity to more people to try it out.
You can test it at: nurp.se


Enjoy!
