News Team

Uruguay has been placed in Group C for the 2024 Copa America, along with the United States, the hosts, Panama, and Bolivia. This is good news for Uruguay, as they have avoided some tough competition in the draw. Argentina and Brazil are in Pot 1, Venezuela and Chile are in Pot 3, and Canada is in Pot 4, so Uruguay has managed to avoid all of these teams in the group stage.

The team led by Marcelo Bielsa has also managed to avoid Brazil and Argentina until the semifinals. The Albiceleste and Cainarinha will only meet in the final, as long as both pass as first in the group. Group A is made up of Argentina, Peru, Chile, and the winner of the play-off between Canada and Trinidad and Tobago. A priori, these last three teams will compete for second place, while Argentina hopes to consolidate the favoritism that comes from being the current champion of everything.

In Group B, we have Mexico, Ecuador, Venezuela, and the winner of the Honduras-Costa Rica play-off. This group is very evenly matched between Mexico, Ecuador, and a Venezuela that has been the real sensation after tying with Brazil in World Cup qualifying. Group D consists of Brazil, Colombia, Paraguay, and Jamaica. Brazil will have an affordable rival in the quarterfinals if they manage to be first, but they are not going through their best moment, as they are currently sixth in World Cup qualification, eight points behind the leader Argentina.

The draw for the 2024 Copa America has set the stage for an exciting tournament, with some tough competition in the group stage and the potential for some exciting match-ups in the knockout rounds. Good luck to all the teams participating, and may the best team win!
