2011's Biggest International Soccer Tournament
For those who've been counting down the days to the 2011 Copa América since the shine on the Spanish victory in South Africa wore off, today was a big day, as the three groups making up the tourney were drawn. Mexico was lumped with Uruguay, Chile, and Peru, a group that, with the exit of Bielsa from the Chilean squad and the ongoing weakness of the Peruvians, shouldn't post the most difficult challenge. And the US, you ask? For some inexplicable reason, they declined to attend the festivities in Argentina. I guess they figured if they can almost beat Ghana, than there's nothing to gain by measuring themselves against the likes of Brazil and Argentina.
