Denmark , Montenegro, Hungary, Japan, Tunisia, Serbia

Group B – Naestved

Cuba, Sweden, Netherlands, Poland, China, Angola


Group C –  Kolding

Brasil, France, Argentina, Korea, Congo, Germany 

Group D –  Fredrikshavn

Norway, Spain, Romania, Russia, Puerto Rico, Kazahstan

Group A seems to become the group of death, meanwhile in group C Puerto Rico and Kazahstan could be considered as eliminated.

Cuba’s place in pot 1 is nearly not acceptable, or placing Hungary and Romania in the same pot 3 with Argentina it makes people to contemplate about the rules.
