Brazil   Brazil: Dangerous counter-attacking team with brilliant ball-handling, but leaves gaps on defense and must watch fouling. Likely U.S. opponent in either quarterfinals or semifinals. Roseli (knee) is out of the tournament, but Brazil still is explosive up front. Pretinha (with two goals in each of the last two games) and Katia are forces at midfield or forward. Sissi is a threat, especially on deadballs. Elane and Nene are key defenders, strong tacklers with just modest speed. Red-haired goalkeeper is Maravilha. "Brazil has joined the elite in women's international soccer," U.S. Coach Tony DiCicco said. Chances: Bound for semifinals if it wins group.
