South America awaits for a champion to be crowned.

Few will anticipate today’s final more than hosts Chile, who could see their national team lift the Copa America trophy for the first time ever against 14-times champion Argentina. La Albiceleste is looking for a continental trophy to make up for a narrow loss in the World Cup Final last summer.

Argentina last won the Copa America in 1993, but history is on their side. That year was the first time in competition history in which neither Brazil nor Uruguay made the last four, and the same thing happened in this year’s edition.

Elsewhere, the England women try to put a heartbreaking semifinal loss to Japan behind them in the third-place game against Germany in the Women’s World Cup. The bar has already been raised for England, as this is the farthest they have ever gone in the tournament.

MLS action is on tap for the July 4 weekend. The Columbus Crew seeks revenge from an earlier defeat at home against the New York Red Bulls, while fourth place LA Galaxy battles third-place Toronto FC.

  1. If I’m going to get an answer on the web, this is probablly the thread.I want to watch the Copa final on my laptop, and the WWC match on TV. I don’t have an HD TV, o it makes no sense for me to order bein Sports, which is HD only (at least where I am). I see that sling tv and something called fubo.tv are streaming bein sports. I would trust Sling, of course, but I know nothing about fubo and everything I see seems to be posted by a shill for the site. It’s cheaper than sling, and it’s got a 24-hr free preview.

    Anyone try this or know the skinny. Is it legit? Unblocked streaming of bein sports games? And, is it trustworthy?

      • Well that left me with b.s pop-up malware warnings that want me to call some # where they will rob me blind, or infect my computer. So, thank you very much.

    • I just saw this, but I have Sling which is pretty cheap because I only have sports coverage. I get bein and universal because it is cheaper than adding it to my tv package. Bein for La Liga,Copa America, Ligue 1 and Serie A and Rugby. Universal for Rugby.

      I had Fubo. It is not a scam (you can get GOL), but it has limited channels and the bundesliga is going to be on Fox next season.
