Who might emerge -- as Messi once did -- at South America Under-20 Championships?

In 2005, South America's under-20 tournament proved a springboard for Lionel Messi to U20 Wrld Cup and global stardom.

Venezuela are the only South American nation never to have made it to a World Cup. But they are convinced that their time will come in 2022 -- and their optimism is based on much more than mere faith. Two years ago they went to the final of the Under-20 World Cup, where they missed a penalty before losing 1-0 to England.

In Venezuela, they believe this generation will carry them all the way to Qatar -- an illustration of the importance that South America attaches to its under-20 teams.

There is...

Juve's Rodrigo Bentancur's star was hatched in the rugged incubator that is Argentina's Superclasico

At just 21, Rodrigo Bentancur is already becoming a staple in Juventus' midfield and one the brightest young stars in all of Serie A.

Winning the Derby d'Italia and putting 14 points between you and your bitter title rivals is one thing. Knowing you now have the weekend off and that the Superclasico is in Madrid on Sunday was definitely a moment to savour for a group of Juventus players earlier this month.

"Who's up for it then?"

As an Argentine, Paulo Dybala had to be there. Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci didn't want to miss out either. Let's be honest what else would you expect? If ever there was a game in their...

Tite yet to find the right blend in Brazil's unsatisfactory win over Uruguay

Neymar reacts during Brazil's friendly win over Uruguay.
Brazil earned a friendly win over Uruguay without ever getting out of second gear.

Brazil's past two games have ended up in 1-0 wins over their historic South American rivals -- first Argentina, and now Uruguay. Even so, there is something unsatisfactory about the scenario, and not just because Argentina have a caretaker coach in charge of an experimental team and Uruguay's defensive resources were so depleted and the victory came as a consequence of a disputed penalty.

Much more important than results at this stage of the South American calendar are performances. As hosts...

Neymar penalty decides battle of big forwards as Brazil better Uruguay

Neymar's penalty was the difference in Brazil's 1-0 friendly win over Uruguay.

LONDON -- Three quick thoughts from Brazil's 1-0 friendly win over Uruguay at the Emirates Stadium on Friday.

1. Neymar decides battle of the forwards

You don't usually associate a game featuring Neymar, Luis Suarez, Roberto Firmino and Edinson Cavani with a cold, drizzly night in north London, but the Emirates played host to one of South America's most historic rivalries on Friday.

Brazil came out on top, beating Uruguay 1-0 in this slightly underwhelming friendly thanks to a contentious...

Brazil, Uruguay have opportunity to experiment with attacking options

Take an in-depth look at how Neymar's tattoos were brought to life in this unique comic book.

With no competitive games until next June, national team football in South America is still going through its silly season.

Colombia have no permanent coach and no games lined up for these FIFA dates. Argentina still have a caretaker coach in charge for their two games against Mexico. Ecuador have appointed Hernan Dario Gomez, but he admits that his team to face Peru and Panama is still at the experimental stage.

Some friendlies, though, are more serious than others. And the South American highlight...
