  England
The star (David Beckham) will be rusty, having just returned from a broken left foot. Defender Gary Neville and midfielder Steven Gerrard will miss the tournament with injuries. And if the English lose or tie their opener against Sweden, they could face a scenario in which Argentina, having won twice to clinch first place in the group, has no incentive against the Swedes in its final first-round match. Talk about irony: the English relying on help from the Argentines for survival.
