Eight teams - including the German World Cup holder and Portugal's European champion - will claim the Confederations Cup held for the 10th time. The tournament It will take two weeks for Germany to be the favorite to win the trophy, given its tradition in the big competitions. Portugal's Fernando Santos and Cristiano Ronaldo are the second favorite. With Alexis Sanchez being in good shape, Chile is considered a third favorite for the cup, followed by Mexico and Russia.

Group A: Portugal / Russia / Mexico / New Zealand

The biggest chances for the first place in the first group are Portugal, which was surprised last year by the Euro. The quality of F. Santos's team is indisputable, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe, Nani, Mutini and Silva being on the team's mission.

Russia faces the event as a "rehearsal" for the World Cup next summer. Stanislaw Tsarszheff's team is infinite, as the big names are missing, but he is considered talented and wants to lay the foundations for a good World Cup tour.

Mexico - which won the Confederations Cup in 1999 - will make its 7th appearance in the institution. With Ernante, Vela and Santos Santos in the roster the team is considered aggressively worthwhile.

New Zealand is the big outsider of the Group. Her most important player is Chris Wood, who plays the English Championship with Leeds. In New Zealand there is also a "scent" of Greece as PAS Giannina's defender, Themis Tzimopoulos, participates in the national mission.

Group B: Germany / Chile / Cameroon / Australia

Yoakim Leb has at his disposal some of the biggest stars of world football. In this tournament, however, players with fewer entries in Ethniki such as Mustafi, Draxler, Emre Chan and Ter Stergen will get opportunities.

Chile is one of the most exciting Latin American teams in recent years, having built a rookie that has won the Copa America and is considered the most talented generation of footballers in the history of the country. Claudio Bravo, Alexis Sanchez, Arturo Vidal and Eduardo Vargas are just some of the "stars" to play at this year's Confederations Cup.

Cameroon has in his roster players known in Greece such as Olivier Bumal of Panathinaikos and Zerom Gioatas of Panionios. 25-year-old Vincenz Abubakar of Besiktas is the most important player in the team on which he is based to surprise and qualify from the second group.

The Australian team-coached by English-born Angelos Posekoglu-is considered quite weak. Without her captain, Millen Gintinak, she is expected to have trouble in her group. However, Australians still have hope of qualifying for the World Cup and will confront the Confederations Cup as an opportunity to prepare for the next qualifying rounds.
