The Copa America is always a terrific event, but this year the competition between Argentina and Brazil will be as fierce as ever, after both of them failed to win the World Cup in South America last year. But here are even more reasons to join the action in front of your TV set.
Though Luis Suarez is suspended you will still find a lot of superstars in Chile including Lionel Messi, Neymar, Alexis Sanchez and Sergio Aguero. Moreover the scheduling is also awesome for those followers of sports scores who watching the tournament from the Americas. The Europeans though still have to solve a problem similar to the one they faced twelve months ago.
The squads participating in the tournament also feature around a score of Premier League stars amongst others, so if you don’t like to observe teams fielding wholly unknown players, you will find a bunch of familiar names in almost every game.
Lionel Messi made his debut for Argentina 10 years ago, but he is yet to win his first trophy with the team. There is a perfect occasion for that, as he was reborn after the World Cup final that was lost in extra time last summer, to lead Barcelona to an historic treble. Now he has a task to go all the way in the Copa America to get his country level on the number of titles with Uruguay.
Of course, Messi wasn’t the only player in that Barcelona squad that won everything this season. The arrivals of Ivan Rakitic from Sevilla and Luis Suarez from Liverpool were main contributors to the success, however, the biggest effort obviously came from the Argentina captain, who changed for this season, together with Barcelona, and everything came off for them.
“We won every competition we entered and it’s incredible to do the treble again,” expressed Messi, according to gambling news. He added, “Thankfully, we were able to fulfil our objectives with our club and hopefully we can now gain more success with the national team which is what we all want.”
Mexico’s main target for this summer is to win the Gold Cup, and in order to give a rest for his key players, Mexico manager Miguel “Piojo” Herrera virtually named a reserve squad to the 44th edition of Copa America. He left out high-profile players like Javier Hernandez, Andres Guardado, Giovani dos Santos and several others.
Still he stated that Mexico is able to win the Copa America with this squad, though El Tri never managed to win the competition in eight previous attempts. With the need of deploying two different squads, he called up virtually unknown players in international football, as well as names who weren’t featured by the national side recently, online mobile news report.
There are a few young players who could take on the opportunity to secure themselves a starting spot for the near future. Javier Guemez is a calm but aggressive defensive midfielder, while the 21-year-old centre-back, Carlos Salcedo, is the youngest in the squad, still playing like an experienced defender. Jesus “Tecatito” Corona is a brave forward, but in order to become the top asset of the team, he must stop trying to do everything by himself.
