Angola and Italy have been drawn into Group A alongside the Dominican Republic and co-hosts Philippines.

Before a ball has been tipped, Italy are seen as favourites to progress, with the question now being who joins them in the second round. A strong mix of veterans (Luigi Datome, Nicolo Melli, Achille Polonara, Giampaolo Ricci and Stefano Tonu) and young talent (Gabriele Procida and Matteo Spagnolo) makes the Italians a formidable team. Tough on defence, their energetic head coach Gianmarco Pozzecco coupled with experienced leadership makes them a tough proposition. They’re also peaking in form having won six preparation games against the likes of Brazil, Greece and Serbia.

Angola, meanwhile, is the underdog in this group. This isn’t their first rodeo, but the African nation has struggled to make it out of the opening round. Hurting them is losing many of their veteran leaders from past World Cups and Olympics: five players aged 33 or older played for Angola last time out and ended up playing a combined 77 games in the tournament over their careers. Furthermore, they’ve lost all five of their preparation games, albeit there were close encounters against Mexico, Portugal and Venezuela.
