!) African , Everybody can see the potentential of the African countries with the play of Senegal. African players are natural athletes and are able to express themselves in futebol. As the African country develops their development infrastructures they will become a major force!

2)Asia: The massive numbers of people to play the futebol in Asia means that in the future they will also be a major force. While the performances of China in this World Cup shows that a lot of work needs to be done , The Korea and Japan are already playing to a good level and the quality can only improve!

3) USA: In this WC the USA showed a new maturity to their play. They have showed it in the qualifying rounds too-against Holland and Italy and winning the Gold cup . They are now developing players who are playing 'regularly' in Europe and in their country. Because the USA has excellent participation numbers in their youths and also excellent training and development facilities and if MLS stays and the ' americans' embraces futebol a little more , the potential is great there too!

I think the USA's soccer programs and league will continue to grow simply due to the resources of this country, especially in the sporting arena, the team will eventually reach true top ten status. Simply because americans don't eat and sleep the game like other nations like Brazil and Italy and so on, they may never reach the fervor of the sport like others do, but it could become at least as popular as hockey.
