This year's Confederations Cup feels very open ahead of the first match on June 17, with four-time champions Brazil not involved for the first time in two decades.
Germany's coach Joachim Low has decided to take a relatively young and inexperienced squad - there are only six players included with 10 or more international caps - meaning the world champions may not be genuine contenders for the trophy.
It means that outsiders such as Mexico, Cameroon and even the Socceroos could be considered a chance to at least make the final if not win the tournament outright.
Mexico, who are worth $9.00 to win at bet365, have been drawn in the weaker Group A alongside Portugal, hosts Russia and Oceania's representative New Zealand.

Group B includes Germany and Chile, who are both ranked above Portugal in FIFA's rankings, plus Cameroon and Australia.
With Russia and the All Whites ranked 63rd and 95th, respectively, El Tri - who won the Confederations Cup at home in 1999 - will be expected to easily advance to the semi-finals.
From there, anything could happen, although Mexico's record away from the Estadio Azteca is cause for concern.
More parochial Australians may rate the Socceroos ($34.00) as worth a flutter, although Cameroon ($15.00) - who are pretty much at full strength after winning the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations - could be a better option.
