The Official Mitú Guide To Talking Trash About Players At Copa América
Are you ready for Copa América Centenario*? No? It’s OK, here’s a quick overview of which players you should follow throughout the tourney, along with the MOST IMPORTANT details you need to have a conversation with friends. You can thank us later.
If someone asks who you think will win it all, your best bet is Argentina. Their best player? Messi, of course.
This tourney is being held in the U.S., which is basically a second home for Mexico. Javier “Chicharito” Hernández will look to lead them to victory.
Although Neymar won’t be playing at this tournament, Brazil is always dangerous. Especially with a guy named Hulk on the squad.
Colombia will be looking to improve on their impressive World Cup 2014 run, led by star James Rodríguez.
If you really want to sound like you know what you’re talking about, his name is pronounced “HAH-MEHZZ.”
With teams like Argentina and Brazil in the mix, Uruguay often gets overlooked. But they boast one of the best strikers in the world — Luis Suárez.
And you can’t count out Chile, the winners of the previous Copa América. Their midfield general is Arturo Vidal.
And of course, the host country, USA can’t be counted out completely. Tim Howard was their standout player at the 2014 World Cup — this year, he may be watching from the bench, but his leadership may still be felt.
