Japan | Mexico |  Nigeria | North Korea |  Norway | Russia |  Sweden | U.S.A.

Russia   Russia: No team is more physically imposing, with 13 members of the 22-player pool 5-foot-7 or taller, and 14 players at 140 pounds or more. Aleksandra Svetlitzkaia, Larissa Savina and Natalia Barbachina have goal-scoring potential, but keys to the attack are skilled central midfielders Irina Grigorieva and Tatyana Egorova. Veteran goalkeeper Svetlana Petko and defender Marina Burakova anchor the defense. Chances: Will fight Canada for No. 2 slot in weakest group.
