    The 43rd Copa America starts in Argentina on 1st July and runs until 24th July.

    12 team will participate, the 10 regular South American nations and Costa Rica and Mexico as guests. Japan were due to participate but withdrew after the Tsunami earlier this year.

    Spurs players involved will probably include Heurelho Gomes & Sandro with Brazil and Giovani Dos Santos with Mexico.

    The Copa America used to be called the South American Championship and has run since 1916, making it one of the oldest international football competition in the world.

    Uruguay and Argentina have both won the competition 14 times, with Brazil in third place with 8 wins.

    Paraguay and Peru have both been Champions twice and Colombia and Bolivia have both won the competition once each.

    Spain were also invited but turned it down as they wanted to give their players a break.

    Would've been very interesting to see Spain up against the likes of Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Mexico on the American's turf.

    Yep I would say brazil is favourites as well but since its in argentina I would give the favourite status to argentinia imo.

    It will be damn hard for anyone to beat them at home.

    the last 2 copa america finals have been brazil vs argentina so we all know which final it will be this time again......

    Its like the gold cup everytime usa and mexico and here its everytime argentina vs brazil.

    With brazil winning but now its time for argentina!

    Its time for messi to show it to neymar!

    I'm not sure what channel it would be on in your area. It's on one of my Spanish channels.
