    A step in the right direction but I'll believe it when I see it.

    we need to focus on our senior nt and youth divisions.

    hosting a copa america really shouldn’t be a priority unless they will fix or make a new stadium for their push for 2030 WC with Argentina and Chile another country since we will need 3 going forward

    So there's talk that the US may host 2024 given that they were invited to play in said Copa America.

    Are we gonna not challenge this after all and just continue to lower in our reputation?

    Look FIFA is super corrupt and COmenbol is probably the worst of the worst.

    Half our fed should be in jail for reselling tickets and the weird US friendlies situation which is happening again.

    US wants every WC, Copa America in the US just like every Gold Cup. SA needs to be like ok you can host but you have to join Comenbol with Mexico and Canada. Rest of Concacaf becomes another Oceania with a 0.5 qualifier spot.

    I saw this too.
    I think it makes sense for the CONCACAF obviously cause they want their best teams to stay sharp for 2026 and the only way to do that is to schedule as many big official matches as possible.

    Does not really make sense for the CONMEBOL though unless they are guaranteed more money than CONCACAF or something (good luck on that).
    Although the pot would be bigger since American TV Networks along with Mexico would pay more if it is held in USA.

    Plus another hurdle would be CONCACAF would have to get special permission from FIFA like the Centenario to bring their best players from Club teams that probably do not want to release them for two Gold Cups and a Copa America.

    So there's a lot to figure out here.
    I just hope it is in Colombia but won't complain if it is here in the USA.
    I enjoyed attending the Centenario a lot.

    Latest rumor I am hearing confirms what my gut was telling me.

    CONMEBOL is trying to keep the Copa America in South America and only play in the USA as a last resort. They would rather have a separate competition Copa Panamericano or whatever and split the money on that contrived tournament and keep all the Copa America money.

    have you guys seen the FIFA Doc on Netflix? I'm on episode 3 right now. It seems like corruption is just part of the culture and its just an everyday thing where no one really bats an eyelid anymore. Blatter seemed so unfazed by it all

    Let's f'ing go!

    Hopefully we start qualifying well and can roll in with momentum.

    How much would I love to ff to the timeline where we have a Diaz-Duran-Sini front three playing in front of Asprilla-Barrios-Puerta? ..... Please let these kids land the way they should...

    This is gonna be fun either way!

    Well, if we're planning this far ahead, Colombia will be in the Olympics that same summer and may need a couple of those guys

    But, yeah, I'm excited with the talent coming up and the promise Lorenzo has shown in integrating them.

    I doubt we qualify to the Olympics but that is only cause I do not think out best players will be allowed to play in qualifying.

    Yeah, the timing of that tournament makes it rough. No way will Yaser, Duran, or Puerta play in it.

    In a way, the cancelation of the last sub 20 helps in that regard. Talented players like Ruiz and Nelson Palacio are still playing in FPC. They might not still be a year from now, though.

    Also, we have talented younger guys in MLS who are always available: Borrero, Edwin Mosquera, Juan David Mosquera.

    No. They brought the Preolympic tournament back.

    good guys who will play at that cup will be the ones to qualify. Also can sell more players that way.

    will Lozano coach or Perea?
