This Would Become The Best Tournament In The World!
National football suffers serious changes at all levels. Increasing the number of participants at the World Cup from 32 to 48 apparently was just the beginning. South American Football Federation (CONMEBOL) has approved a change in the system of competition at the continental championship, the so-called Copa America, but in this tournament since 2019, we can expect some teams that will participate by invitation.
GloboEsporte says that invitations will be sent in several parts of the world, and from Europe in 2019 in Brazil could participate Italy, France, Spain and Portugal.
CONMEBOL specifies that the number of “visiting” team shall not exceed six.
If the information of the newspaper offices ends up to be correct, there is no doubt that we will get a tremendous tournament, probably the strongest in the world. Imagine that among the 16 national teams are Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Colombia, Spain, France, Italy, Portugal …
What do you say, it is not a bad idea?
The South Americans have previous years practiced to invite an occasional team to perform as a guest at the Copa America (Japan, Mexico, United States …) but never a very important football name, such as these which are now mentioned.
