    The potential dark horses:
    Hosts Korea Republic will be able to call on not just a gifted, high-energy side, but raucous support from an entire nation. Zambia claimed the African crown in style, their explosiveness in particular catching the eye. USA will be hopeful that their defensive solidity can take them a long way, as was the case in the CONCACAF qualifying competition, while Mexico will fancy their chances of sweeping aside all comers if star attacker Ronaldo Cisneros is on song.
