  1. In last 5 Copa America, Argentina always reached the finals except in 2011 and that’s by losing on shootout to eventual champion.

    Argentina always put at least decent performance in Copa regardless the team form, so this time there shouldnt be any excuse not to reach at least a semifinal. Argentina has tradition reaching a final in Copa (almost 30 times), we shouldnt use “transitional period” as an excuse for poor performance.

  2. Local league team?
