Mina's future looks bright but not at Barcelona


Chile advance the hard way, while Colombia taste disappointment

Perhaps Chile fans will now stop booing the name of coach Reinaldo Rueda when the line ups are announced in the build up to the kick off.

They certainly should stop booing him. Chile's qualification for the semifinals of the Copa America -- achieved with a penalty shoot out win over his native Colombia -- is his triumph, in which several obstacles had to be overcome. The first was the 8pm kick off -- dangerously early in the gridlocked city of Sao Paulo. Many of the supporters arrived at the stadium...

James Rodriguez, Alexis Sanchez playing for club careers at Copa America

Inside the bubble of a major international tournament, it somehow seems wrong -- almost an act of treason -- to be thinking about the club game. The cold fact is, though, that life does not end with the final of the Copa America on July 7, and that the players are rightly concerned with their club careers and the dynamic they will take into the new season. That especially applies to big names in limbo, like two stars on opposing sides of Friday's intriguing quarterfinal clash in Sao Paulo between...

Uruguay vs. Peru

WHERE: Arena Fonte Nova, Salvador
WHEN: Saturday, 3 p.m. ET, live on ESPN+

THE STORY SO FAR ...: The old master Oscar Tabarez, now in his 13th year as Uruguay boss, blended youth and experience wisely...

Paraguay already 'winning' against Brazil, Argentina-Venezuela too close to call

Make way for the real stuff: The phony war of the Copa America group phase is over.

Of the 12 sides, just four go home. Guests Japan and Qatar can make the long journey feeling relatively good about themselves. Japan came with a very young, inexperienced squad and produced some flair. Qatar, with the team crowned Asian champions, showed some interesting tactical concepts and picked up valuable experience on the way to hosting the next World Cup.

Bolivia and Ecuador make the shorter journey in some...

Lionel Messi is throwing Argentina off balance

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says the effects of losing with Argentina have taken their toll on Lionel Messi's confidence.

The World Cup is the culmination of a process. Teams have fought to be there. They are battle hardened and ready, clear about what they are trying to do.

The Copa America is the opposite. It is the start of a new process, kicking off a new cycle of competitive games. That is even more true about Brazil 2019. Qualification for the 2022 World Cup starts later than usual -- next March rather than this October. That has taken away some of the urgency of the current tournament -- seen most clearly in...

Colombia can plunge Messi and Argentina into further despair

Gab Marcotti dissects the rivalry between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi fans and finds it "odd" how supporters of one generally dislike the other.
While horse riding wasn't involved, Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero took to the polo pitch to train alongside Argentine star Adolfo Cambiaso.

In the opening few days of Copa America action, one game leaps out. The continent's best two teams in last year's World Cup -- Brazil and Uruguay -- are likely semifinalists. The next best pair are Argentina and Colombia -- and these two heavyweights meet each other in Salvador's splendid stadium on Saturday.

Brazil and Uruguay share a certain continuity. They have retained the coaches who took them to Russia last year, with Uruguay's Oscar Washington Tabarez in charge of La Celeste since the start...
