The term “dark horse” is often heard in several industries including politics and sports. In both cases, they have similarities because they are the team or person who is unlikely to win. These soccer teams have great players and great strategies, but they are known as being a weaker team. These teams include Egypt, Morocco, Peru, Iceland and England.
These teams are not known as the powerhouses in soccer. There are other teams that have a greater chance of winning, but they do not always win. Sometimes, these dark horses win and surprise everyone. Prior to the World Cup, teams will practice and sometimes the powerhouse teams seem to cocky and they don’t practice enough. Then the dark horse team ends up winning.
It is a known fact that there are some teams in the World Cup that managed to win twice. Some have won once. There are some teams that have gotten close to winning but fell short at the very last moment. One of these teams is Croatia. This is known to be one of the strongest teams available, at least on paper. If they would be able to prove that they are good, then they might stand a chance against the perennial favorites.
Another dark horse is Belgium. This is one of those teams that has managed to reach the top 8 last World Cup and its roster seems promising. Who knows, it may be their time to take the coveted trophy home. There are a lot of people who think that Peru is one of the teams that can become a shocker because the team has improved steadily over the past years.
