Costa Rica - Under 20 team is ok.

 

Argentina - under 20 team with the exception Saviola,Gonazalez,Heinz but some of their young players are already playing in Agerntina "A" team so they have a strong squad.Argetina have to be the favorite to win gold.

 

Mexico - I hear their under 20 team is better than the A team.

 

Paraguay - under 20 team is good enough to make some noise.They did manage to beat Brazil in Copa America.

 

Too bad neither Colombia or Brazil qualify. :mad :
