Best Chance of Advancing Ranking
which team has the best chance to advance its ranking from last year? If you take into account the difficulty of the groups, there's a couple teams that can really improve their standing. The most notable would have to be Laos. Their team is a lot different and if they can make it out of the group stage....well anything is an improvement from last year. They are pretty good and it's too bad they got stuck in such a hard group. Any other group and they would make it out for sure. England also had a bad tourney last year and will really be a contender this year IF they can make it out of that death group. Norway, after beating Ireland in an exhibition match, also seems like a legitimate contender. Although it was a tryout and more of a practice for Ireland, they should still make it out of their group and advance their standing into the top 7 or 8.
