Copa America

Was listening to Tim Vickery on Second Captains and it sounds like it's a total joke that the tournament is going ahead at all, and basically defies sense. Constant issues with the hosts, Bolsanero being Bolsanero, players not wanting to compete, and this daftness about it being something daft like the fourth one in six years.

Mental this is going ahead in Brazil of all places after the argies lost it due to Covid

 

I mean it's asolutely fucking idiotic to have it in Brazil, but Argentina has almost twice as many COVID cases per capita at the moment tbf as well as less vaccinated and when they made the decision Argentina was running into a wall. Glad it has reversed and the cases are falling there again.

No Rondon these days?

Think its because of an covidoutbreak in the Venezuelan squad, so they have a reserve-team-thing going on with they main squad in quarantine..

 

From a random newspage:

The Venezuelan national football team was hit by a COVID-19 outbreak a day before the opening match of the Copa America against host Brazil on Sunday. Eight players and four coaches tested positive shortly after arriving in Brasilia, said Brazilian Health Minister Marcelo Queiroga. "They're all fine"

Rondon not in the squad at all though. Assumed it must have been some issue with traveling from Russia/China (wherever he's based)? 

That or he’s coming home…

Seriously how is this the best the BBC could put out? There are many great local radio commentators out there that could do a decent job.

 

I feel bad criticising the dude, as he's probably some apprentice trying to make a name for himself, but it's so bad :lol:
