The U.S. defends the Algarve title.
Props to Denmark, though, for making them work for it and for improving on the scoreline of last year. The Danish team is definitely one to watch for.
Sadly absent from this tournament that hosts so many of the world's top teams, however, was Brazil. It seems the federation won't invest in the team except for the biggest events, like the Olympics and the World Cup. It's such a shame that a Portuguese-speaking team and such an exciting team can't participate in this classic tournament in Portugal.
