Preview a Pool: Group B

Finalist Canada will try to again make it out of group stage and into the final, but this year they'll have an even tougher challenge in a bigger pool. Norway looks to be a real contender this year with a solid all-around team and Ukraine, another newcomer, also looks to make a run. Northern Ireland has to try and turn things around from a dismal 2006 outing, and Poland will look to improve on it's lone win. Prediction: Norway, Canada, Ukraine, Poland, Northern Ireland. Norway will not let Canada do what it did to Jamaica and Germany last year, but Canada will also be too tough for the other teams in Group B. Ukraine, Poland and Northern Ireland just won't have what it takes to beat the solid team effort by Canada.

everyone always underestimates canada. theyll probably run the table again because no one gives them any credit

everyone has a reason to give them no credit, they cut so many good players and kept some bad players, and the games people have seen canada play, caanada showed nothing, and to say there going to run the table is some big words i hope you can eat them!

since Canada made it to the final last year, theres no way teams like Jamaica and Germany will take them lightly. they will probably make it out of the group but then get demolished in playoffs.

i watched canada play an exhibition game against laos and they looked like a recreational team that had never played soccer before... they had no shape or ball control or anything... very little individual talent will not take them very far.. they will be lucky to get out of their group

The full Canada team played a friendly against England's B team (who had no subs and old men) and still could only pull out a tie. No chance of advancing

A poor showing from Norway! but they still won. That's saying something. Look for the Norweigans to turn it aound and for their team (which has good depth) to step up.
