Copa America: Competition under threat of cancellation

Will the Copa America take place this summer? Not so sure. The competition, which is due to kick off on 11 June in Brazil, is under threat. After Argentina and Colombia, Brazil could withdraw because of Covid-19. The country has around 450,000 dead and even fears a third wave. And faced with this situation, part of the population is against holding the Copa in Brazil.

Moreover, according to the Brazilian press, the Seleção players would like it to be cancelled. Asked at a press conference, coach Tite said: "We have a very clear opinion and we will give it only after the two games of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.'' a statement from the supposed host said. The Brazilians are due to play Ecuador (5 June) and Paraguay (9 June) in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
