    Mad he's reached 4 International finals and not won one.

    You'd think law of average they'd have nicked one.

    The Andy Murray of International football.

    That "TBC v Bolvia" fixture is nonsense anyway.

    First of all, all the teams for Copa America are confirmed (obviously) so why would it be TBC? Secondly, there are no games scheduled for the 19th June at Copa America... nothing gets past me.



    That said, the sentiment of the tweet is correct. There will be instances where there are up to ten games in a 40 hour window just not exactly as above. Yes I'm sad enough to spend time working it out.

    For example... 13/14/15th June... UK times...

    2pm England v Croatia
    5pm Austria v North Macedonia
    8pm Netherlands v Ukraine
    10pm Argentina v Chile
    -
    1am Paraguay v Bolivia
    2pm Scotland v Czech Republic
    5pm Poland v Slovakia
    8pm Spain v Sweden
    -
    12am Brazil v Venezuela 
    3am Colombia v Ecuador
    5pm Hungary v Portugal
    8pm France v Germany

    5pm Denmark v Belgium
    8pm Netherlands v Austria

    1am Argentina v Uruguay
    2pm Sweden v Slovakia
    5pm Croatia v Czech Republic
    8pm England v Scotland
    -
    12am Colombia v Venezuela
    3am Peru v Brazil
    2pm Hungary v France

    That one is very promising.

    Hosting was taken away from Colombia late last week due to political unrest and all games were rescheduled to be played in Argentina.

    Now this week, all football has just been suspended in Argentina due to the pandemic.

    CONMEBOL is looking into the possibility of hosting the tournament in the US last minute. Chile, Ecuador and Venezuela have all offered to host too.

    Qatar and Australia were invited and originally confirmed for this tournament but had to withdraw due to schedule clashes with their AFC/WC qualifiers
  • Qatar are playing in the Concacaf Gold Cup in the USA this summer as well.
  • Argentina also now stripped of the tournament, which is due to start in 2 weeks!

  • Surely it'll be cancelled.
  • Hopefully it can be scheduled for a South American country but if not then it's better to host it in the US than to completely cancel it

    Big job setting up a whole tournament somewhere new in 2 weeks though.

    Easier to arrange without fans though. Can use the same stadiums that are set aside for the Gold Cup, as that starts when the Copa America ends.
  • Was listening to Tim Vickery, who I respect, only last night and he was positive it would go ahead in Argentina with no fans allowed.
    Real shame 
  • I still think it will go ahead. I don’t think the operation to set it up will be as hard as it sounds. Sports and many industries have had to learn how to flip their plans at a moments notice all throughout the pandemic, and this shouldn’t be no different.

    Wouldnt surprise me if the dates moved out by a week or two though.

    Looks like its been moved to Brazil

    Lot of people replying in the comments saying the COVID situation in Brazil is worse than Argentina!!


  • Bolsonaro is such an idiot. Brazil has been riddled with COVID for months. 
  • Bizarre, surely Brazil is in a worse Covid situation than Argentina?!
  • that’s insane! Worse Covid and more travelling.
  • I’m assuming it’s behind closed doors either way?
  • The Argentinian government were going to cancel it so the federation stepped in first

    Yes it is.

    Apparently Argentina asked for better Covid measures and CONMEBOL went nah, stuff that, we'll just hold it somewhere that doesn't ask.
  • Better not to hold it at all than hold it in Brazil, madness. 
  • Brazil v Venezuela tonight for those who've not had enough football today!!
