Which ‘small’ team seems most likely to make a deep run at this tournament?
Andrew Price

Andrew Price (coach and marketing specialist): After the first set of games, Japan looks like a team that has been prepared to go the distance. Their energy and tenacity has been excellent.

Tanya Lee Perkins

Tanya Lee (athlete manager, head of LEEP Marketing): It’s tough to select, with some teams only playing one game so far. I like the look of Ecuador, but a lot will depend on Enner Valencia’s fitness going forward as he will be needed for them to make a deep run.

Damion Lowe

Damion Lowe (Inter Miami, 49 caps for Jamaica): Based on the results so far, it’s fair to say the title “small team” is no longer fitting, but if I should choose, I’d say Poland.
