Anybody here watching this?

Couldn't watch it last night, so i had to make due with the one hour highlights. The Uruguay vs Peru match was good start to the tournament followed by the host (Venezuela) against Bolivia.

Anyone one know who's the one to watch in this competition and etc....?

love Copa America!!! i personally feel this is better than Euro due to the new talents and different playing styles every year and from these teams it's so interesting!!!

but then, i reckon the final will again be the Brasil vs Argentina...if only they had better quality teams, then it will for sure be better than UEFA...

but I say Brasil on top!!!!

yeah probably not as many deep teams as in the euros, but they play a much more wide open game IMO.. seems like the teams in europe play not to lose and the south americans play to win... the big game is tommorow night, USA vs Argentina

USA does have Donovan, LOL...even though Canada should've tied USA (and probably beat them) in Gold Cup...sigh, Big Countries always gets the benefits of doubts.....

but seeing how Argentina has won nothing in the last 14 years, and how with an ok strong squad, they lost to back-ups in the Copa America last time, as well as losing to Brasil again in the Confederations Cup...so they will come hungrier than ever!!

Anyone knows if Afonso Alves will play? Would be interesting to see him play on this level.
he played and ripped a volley, too bad the keeper got to it.. he just looks like a big brickhouse who can hold the ball up. robhino was dancing everywhere but this kid castillo for mexico is amazing!

Mexico 2-:0 Brasil
Brasil looked like Arsenal for abit with 20 shots on goal and nothing entering the net. Anyhow , unlucky Brasil w/ goal disallow from a unjust call from linesman , well done Mexico! (you can beat them but never US)


Ecuador 2-3 Chile was the MOTD...come back from hell lol

mehico suprised me this morning, especially considering that their squad is far from full strength.
