Copa America verdict: Best and worst game, best goal, biggest surprise, more

Now that the 2016 Copa America has come to an end, we asked our writers to reflect on its highs and lows.


Tim Vickery: I enjoyed Argentina's semifinal display in the 4-0 win vs. the U.S. and Chile's 7-0 quarterfinal rout of Mexico immensely; they were magnificent team performances. But in terms of a game involving two teams, I think I might have to go with Ecuador 2-2 Peru. The Peruvians started out like a train, with Ecuador straining to get back in it.

Jeff Carlisle: Argentina 2-1 Chile: This...

Should Copa America be cut to save the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in CONMEBOL?

Eight weeks have gone by since the coronavirus pandemic caused the sudden suspension of the Copa Libertadores, South America's Champions League, after just two of six weeks of group phase action. At the time, CONMEBOL was hoping for a restart on May 6, but that date has come and gone with no sign of a resumption. Some of South America's nations are making tentative plans for the return of football, but with Argentina closing its borders to commercial flights  until Sept. 1, the ball will not...

How will CONMEBOL fit Copa Libertadores, World Cup qualifying and Copa America into football's coronavirus-hit calendar?

But all of this, almost certainly, will take place without the presence of fans inside stadiums. Argentina's Minister for Sport and Tourism Matias Lammens is a former first-division club president,...

History provides hope that Copa America can come back stronger after coronavirus-forced postponement

Steve Nicol and Shaka Hislop feel the correct decision has been made to suspend all major leagues in Europe.

The world's oldest continental competition, the Copa America was first played in 1916 -- while Europe was at war -- with the original intention of staging the tournament annually.

The first one was held in Argentina, the 1917 version took place in Uruguay, and the 1918 tournament was set for Brazil. But though the Copa carried on during the First World War, there was one global event it could not ignore -- the outbreak of the so-called "Spanish Flu" pandemic. This disease, which infected over...

Coronavirus: Copa America postponed until 2021 due to outbreak

The tournament, which was due to take place in Argentina and Colombia from June 12 to July 12 this summer, has become the latest football event to be pushed back for health reasons.
