The 10 CONMEBOL countries and guest countries Mexico and Japan learned their fates for the group stage of the 2011 Copa America on Thursday, with host Argentina receiving a favorable draw. Here are the three groups:
GROUP A – Argentina, Japan, Bolivia, Colombia
GROUP B – Brazil, Paraguay, Ecuador, Venezuela
GROUP C – Uruguay, Chile, Mexico, Peru
The top two teams in each group and the two best third-place teams advance to the quarterfinals of the July, 2011, tournament. Brazil is the two-time defending champion after capturing the 2004 and 2007 crowns with victories over Argentina in the final both times.
Who do you see advancing from each group? Wish the United States had been invited as a guest nation? Do you see Mexico making it to the quarterfinals?
