The World Cup comes with a guaranteethat it will always deliver you something unexpected. Based on the shocks in the previous tournaments, here are 5 teams which canupset the apple cart and qualify forthe Round of 16.

#1 Mexico

The 2012 Olympic Goal Medalists had a sketchy path in the qualifications. Despite that, the team has a few impact players like Javier Hernandez and Giovani Dos Santos who can turn the table at any moment of time. With a slight advantage in regards to familiarity to the weather conditions over teams like Croatia, the Mexicans stand a good chance of upsetting the Europeans. They’ll however need the best performance from their side, the likes of which we saw in 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup and 2012 Olympics.
