    La idea del hilo también pasa por comentar lo que muestra la imagen para saber que les parece que en los últimos 50 años los campeones fueron..

    Brasil 5 veces: 1989, 1997, 1999, 2004 y 2007.

    Uruguay 4 veces: 1967, 1983, 1987 y 1995

    Argentina 2 veces: 1991 y 1993

    Bolivia 1 vez: 1963
    Perú 1 vez: 1975
    Paraguay 1 vez: 1979
    Colombia 1 vez: 2001

    Y que además Argentina fue sede de la Copa América de 1987.

    Ya sabían todo esto?

    Y que en 1991 y 1993 la selección uruguaya participó sin un solo jugador del exterior?

    En fin.. Si alguien quiere comentar está bien, y sino bueno, también.

    Saludos.

    PD: Vamo arriba Uruguay! Por la decimoquinta desde la primera en 1916!

    Argentina juega bien y además tiene un DT que sabe más que el anterior. Son los favoritos y tienen la presión de ganar tras 18 años de sequía.

    It could be the surprise (just like in the WC) seen as they're so close, they're almost the second home team :D

    Uruguayos always eager to post historic stats:D;)


    I think Argentina will win it because they are the host and have good talent.

    I am hopping for someone else to win it though.

    Ya no hay tanta emocion cuando los cariocas ganan aunque todos estamos en la expectativa de como se maneja el chiquillo Neymar, para mi en lo personal me gustaria ver una final Argentina vs Uruguay ya que los yoruguas han campeonado muchas veces en la argentina y los juecez serian muy parcial. pero solo me conformo que la rojiblanca le demos un baile a los rotos y le propinemos un 4 a 0.

    That was very disappointing, with Maradona playing, and being world champions and all. They don't have a Francéscoli though.

    that semifinal was historic. The play was made by Enzo and scored by Alzamendi, who both felt like they were playing at home in El Monumental. Enzo was playing in France, but he had already won the top scorer in Argentina with River twice, in 1984 and 1986. Alzamendi had in 1986 scored the goal that made River world champions. Just a few months before this match, Alzamendi scored a famous goal against Boca in El Monumental that was very similar to the one he scored against Argentina. I know many River fans who wanted Uruguay to win against Maradona

    especially considering how strong this brazil team is. while it has struggled lately, the addition of pato and ganso will be a tremendous boost.

    i still would probably give the edge to argentina because they are the host. but there will be immense pressure on them -- been the favorites the past 2 times and have not won. and they havent won an international title in almost 20 years (olympics excluded).
