USA

World Cup participations: 7
Greatest World Cup achievement: semi-final (1930)

The Americans - denounced as football-nobodies some years ago, have qualified every time in the last 16 years and also delivered good performances in many cases. They even made it into the quarter-final in 2002. This time they have qualified as winner in the Concacaf-group ahead of Mexico.

Star Landon Donovan could not find his place in the Bundesliga at Leverkusen and plays at LA Galaxy, DaMarcus Beasly of PSV Eindhoven, Claudio Reyna of Man City and Onyewu of Standard Liege are known names in Europe.

The strengths of the USA are the collective and the team spirit that comes especially at big events and optimism and ambition that distinguishes the Americans. The weakness is the lack of international experience.

The group is very difficult and it is rather unlikely that the USA will finish as second.

The odds on USA as world cup winner were rather high
- 101.0 at Betandwin.
For a bet on group winner USA you get 9.0.
For a bet on USA reaching the last 16 you get 2.75.
