FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 Predictions / Online Poll
All 8 national football teams are categorized into two groups of four teams each. Fans have already picked up their winners. The first group is featuring Russia, New Zealand, Portugal and Mexico. Second group is featuring Chile, Australia, Germany and African Champions.
Russia: Home support will be the biggest advantage of Russia in Confederations Cup 2017. They are expected to go through group stage, but it would be hard for them to go further. So far in the history of football, they have not won any major tournament. Can they do it this time?
New Zealand: They are playing it fifth time. In 1999, New Zealand debuted in this championship and since then, they are still looking for the first title glory. Presence of Portugal and Mexico have made it more tougher fore them. It would be difficult whether they can proceed to semi finals.
Portugal: After a remarkable victory in France in 2016, the Navigators are just unstoppable. Having one of the best footballers in the team squad, Portugal are one of the best contenders to win this trophy. Fans wants to see them in semi finals or final. Let’s see how far they can go.
Mexico: One time Confederations Cup champions Mexico have everything what they need to be Champions. Mexico is the most experienced team in FIFA Confederations Cup 2017. One thing they lacks is consistency which is the biggest problem for the team. We expect they’ll overcome this limitation in 2017.
Chile: After conquering Copa America 2015 and 2016, Chile have shocked the football world with two back to back major titles. Having phenomenal attack and strong defence are the positive points of Chile. From Group B, Chile are one of the favorites to qualify for the semi final round.
Australia: The Asian champion are playing this competition for the fifth time in history, but still eyeing for the first victory. Their best result came in 1997 when they finished it in second place. Australia are confident to qualify for the knock out round. Will they?
Germany: World Champions Germany are the favorites to win this competition. The four times World Cup winners have probably the best midfield squad in Confederations Cup 2017. They were undefeated in World Cup 2014 and are in great form. Being one of the best football teams of all time, the Germans have not won it even single time. Will they end the Confederation Cup drought this time?
