Who will win the FIFA Confederations Cup?

This year's FIFA Confederations Cup begins tomorrow in Brazil. Let's take a look at the teams in Group A of this tournament and see who will make it to the semifinals. The top two qualify.

Group A:

1. Italy. Top to bottom, Italy has the most complete team in this group.

2. Japan. The combination of Keisuke Honda and Shinji Kagawa is the most dynamic duo in Group A. Japan will look to surprise as they have already qualified for the World Cup in Brazil next summer.

3. Brazil. The expectations have been placed too high for this team. Fans expect for Brazil to be great all of the time, but the squad has been lackluster over the past couple of years.

4. Mexico. Mexico has slipped over the past year. They could use this Confederations Cup to either wake up or remain mired in a slump.
