    Copa America Centenario 2016

    I know most posters are focused on the Euros and there's less interest for the American Cup, but I hope (at least) a couple of posters chime in on this thread b/c of your higher level of knowledge (of players playing in the cup)

    I am very glad that the US team (USMNT) will advance to the quarter finals, by finishing first in Group A (by goal differencial) over Columbia.

    The USMNT will play in my hometown! June 16th, this Thursday.

    Century Link field "the clink" will host our US Team as they play the runner up of Group B, which wee'll know at the end of Sunday night (USA time).

    The US will play either Brazil, Peru, or Ecuador.


    Anyone, please add any thoughts.....

    First video ^^^ it looks like a body legit goal.

    The second video ^, from the angle it looks like an obvious handball.


    So, handball.

    Fair enough?


    It's too late now.....

    Well, Argentina gave a thrashing of the US team, as they are considered to much better. US was missing three players for the game. 0-4 is a whoopin' but good on the USMNT for this America Cup.

    Messi breaks Argentina record with majestic free kick

    Lionel Messi has become Argentina's all-time leading goalscorer with an incredible free kick in the Copa America semi finals against USA.
    The superstar midfielder stepped up to the ball well outside the area and curled a majestic strike into the top corner.
