As you look through the groups, it isn’t as exciting as a European Championship or the similar tournament in America, but it is still interesting.
The team with the highest FIFA ranking is Iran (ranked as number 29), followed by Australia which is currently ranked number 41 on the same list. Japan is the third best team in the tournament according to the same list, and they are currently ranked as the 50th best team in the world according to the same list.
Based on these stats, it should be clear that Iran, Australia, and Japan are the teams we expect to win the tournament. But, one more nation to look out for is South Korea. They have some great players with lots of speed and great skills. They haven’t been very good lately, but if they get started, South-Korea might very well end up winning the entire tournament.
