I knew you were gonna come up with those facts. Alright, i admit my answer wasn't on point. However, I doubt you really watched those Copa America games where Ronaldo participated. Uruguay had Reccoba in his prime, Colombia had Valderrama, Argentina had Batistuta , and Chile had Marcelo Salas. That goes without mentioning Mexico, Paraguay, and Bolivia who made it to the finale in 1997. Argentina were eliminated by Peru. Competition was raw, i certainly don't know how you can argue against it. The best South American football players alongside the best player in the World at that time (Ronaldo) were all participating in that event. It's just not right to dismiss others accomplishments, becuase you somehow come up with a conclusion of your own that the level of competition was fairly average back then. Totally disrespeting latin football and their great players that poured their soul in it.
