Japan has withdrawn for C.A.2011
Costa Rica association confirms they have accepted to take Japan's place with the U-23 squad. This kind of sucks, but understandable giiven priority for Gold Cup just weeks before for senior team.
It doesn't kind of suck. It sucks. Another Sub-23 team? CONMEBOL and that corrupt POS Leoz don't realize how much damage they are doing to Copa America?
It's a joke.
10 teams and that's it!
CONMEBOL shouldn't invite any teams in the first place.
Why not reduce the final round to 8 teams and have some kind of qualification to get rid of two teams?
You mean like having some sort of qualifying with like 4 bottom teams and from there get qualify 2 and eliminate the other 2? That's okay but I don't see why with just 10 teams we can't have our own tournament.
2 groups of 5 should work as well for the final tournament. But I don't really like groups with an uneven number of teams.
The tournament makes a lot of money when Mexico is in it. It was also going to be profitable from a Japanese television perspective until the fiasco happened.
Going back to 10 teams would be a bad idea in my book.
Also, I know I am selfish but living here in the USA I dont want this thing to be on pay-per-view again. I like Free Univision/Telefutura,
Well too bad. CONMEBOL doesn't need money for anything, because either way they aren't doing anything for south american football with it, so they're just making south american football the prostitute of world football like this, and it's because they either are approaching the wrong markets or giving the wrong approach.
Why is the U.S. not participating in Copa America?
The U.S were not invited.
I thought it had to do with MLS scheduling.
Yeah because of them bringing in a U23 team and Conmebol said no no, but guess what? Costa Rica and maybe Mexico might do the same thing!
2 groups of 5 would definitely work with the top 3 teams advancing. The youth tournaments do it so why can't we do it for the CA?
To make it an even number, the best two fourth placed teams should advance too...
I'd rather have 4 teams advancing or try to get 6 invitees.. the 3 group format is crap...
There we go problem solved.
Let's forward this thread to Senor Leoz.
Ofcourse it won't happen tho, Leoz loves those Mexican pesos.
I think we could something similar to what they did with the U17 in 2009.
-Have 2 groups of 5 teams.
-The team placed 1st of each group advances to the semi-final directly.
-The teams placed 2nd face the team placed 3rd of the other group in knock-out matches and the winners join the group leaders in the semi-finals.
Yeah, there are a lot of ways that it could be done.
But our dirigentes prefer to completely devalue the tournament.
