Copa America 2011 Teams Announced

On the heels of us sending yet another joke of a squad last year to the Copa, we were not asked back (good move Bradley). Instead we see perennial contenders, Mexico, as well as newcomer Japan. Japan is riding in on the feeling of beating Argentina 1-0 in Japan. How they will do in Copa America, we'll have to wait and see.

Group A
Argentina
Bolivia
Colombia
Japan

Group B
Brazil
Ecuador
Paraguay
Venezuela

Group C
Chile
Mexico
Peru
Uruguay

So what do you think? Looks promising with Argentina set for a rematch with Japan and Argentina also facing Bolivia (who beat them 6-1 in Bolivia because of "altitude and late bus times, etc" under Maradona).

Mexico also made a late surprise announcement that new coach Manuel de la Torre will not be attending the Copa, instead he will be staying home to focus on winning the Gold Cup. Interesting.
