Group C will be a tough pool. All the teams have the ability to come out. Canada, again heavy underdogs, always seem to make it to the playoffs. Scotland has already tied Ukraine 1-1 in exhibition, and though that's not to say they can beat Ukraine, it at least shows they can hang with them. Northern Ireland, although arguably the weakest team is this pool, could upset a top team that overlooks them. Jamaica will be looking to prove that its recent player losses will not affect their team. Ukraine has shown good stuff in exhibition, and they look to prove they're a real contender.
Prediction: Ukraine, Jamaica, Scotland, Canada, Northern Ireland.
Ukraine is the strongest team of the group and should be the favorite to come out of the group. Jamaica, although losing some players, should be able to hold on Scotland. Canada isn't as good as they've been the past couple years, so I don't see them moving on to the playoffs this time. Northern Ireland may beat one or two teams, but they won't be able to make it out.
Game to Watch: Jamaica vs. Scotland. I think Ukraine has a very good chance to come out of this group, and I think the game between Jamaica and Scotland will decide which other team makes it out.
