Uruguay has been placed in Group C for the 2024 Copa América, along with the United States, the hosts, Panama, and Bolivia. The team led by Marcelo Bielsa has avoided Brazil and Argentina until the semifinals, which is good news for them. The Albiceleste and Cainarinha would only meet in the final, as long as both pass as first in the group.
In Group A, we have Argentina, Peru, Chile, and the winner of the play-off between Canada and Trinidad and Tobago. It is expected that 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.
Group B is possibly the easiest of all, with Mexico, Ecuador, Venezuela, and the winner of the Honduras-Costa Rica match. The competition is expected to be very evenly matched between Mexico, Ecuador, and a Venezuela that has been a real sensation after tying with Brazil in the qualification for the World Cup.
In Group D, we have Brazil, which will be with Colombia, Paraguay, and Jamaica. Vinicius’ National Team will have an affordable rival in the quarterfinals if it manages to be first, but they are not going through their best moment, as seen in the Qualification for the 2026 World Cup, where they are currently sixth, eight points behind the leader Argentina.
Good luck to Uruguay, which has managed to avoid Argentina and Brazil in Pot 1, Venezuela and Chile in Pot 3, and Canada in Pot 4. The draw for the Copa América 2024 has set up some exciting matchups, and it will be interesting to see how the tournament unfolds.
