Canada's Hoag says Brazil favourites for title number 10
Mar del Plata, Argentina, 17 July 2013 - Canada coach Glenn Hoag thinks nine-time World League champions Brazil are the favourites for what he says will be a very competitive 2013 finals tournament.
Brazil lost just one match during the Intercontinental round on the way to Mar del Plata, earning them the title of favourites, but Hoag also feels Bulgaria could be the surprise team of 2013.
"Bulgaria has been doing amazing with the new coaching [of Italian Camillo Placi]. They have a great approach to their game and it seems to be succeeding."
Watch Hoag's assessment of the 2013 finals in the video interview below.
