It’s been really busy yesterday. Lots of news regarding our national team and our football in the future.
Here´s a brief list of the most important news from yesterday:
DRAW FOR THE COPA AMERICA VENEZUELA 2007
Argentina will play in Group C against United States, Colombia and Paraguay (in that order).
Our debut will be against United States on 28 June at Maracaibo.
Group A will see the host Venezuela playing against Bolivia, Uruguay and Peru.
Group B contains Brazil, Mexico, Ecuador and Chile.
COPA AMERICA 2011
This is something I didn´t expect and I had no idea about, but it has been confirmed that the Copa America 2011 will be played in Argentina!
I remember I was 10 when the Copa America was last played in my country (1987) and Uruguay were the winners (while Argentina and Brazil didn´t even make it to the final match and didn´t even finish in the top three -which were Uruguay, Chile and Colombia-).
WORLD CUP QUALY
It´s been confirmed that the fixtures will again be the same as in the last two editions of the South American World Cup Qualifiers. Argentina will then start playing against Chile and will close the campaign aiming to secure a ticket for South Africa 2010 with a game against Uruguay.
