Depends on your view really. Comparing E and F, Czech Republic are obviously a good side, but they've not done anything at a major tournament for a decade, while Japan performed at the last WC and Croatia came 3rd in 98. USA and Ghana are certainly not significantly better than any of the teams in F.
This group obviously has two world class sides, but the rest are just competitive. This group is probably the toughest of the lot to draw as a weaker team, since you have to face two top quality nations to quality for the 16, but in terms of consistent quality across the 4 teams, E and F are both just as strong.
