Mexico beat Paraguay and Chile both 1-0. Very impressive and they're looking pretty good for the Copa America. I think they'll make it through their group in second, losing to Uruguay and beating the other 2.

The USA is a mystery still. Ecuador should have beaten the USA, as Ecuador are miles above them. Beating Bolivia's B team is nothing to brag about either. Not a bold prediction at all to say that USA will go out in the groups. They were unlucky to have to face 2 good South American sides in the draw.

Peru won both their friendlies, although against shit teams. I shouldn't be impressed but I am by our finishing. We scored 7 goals in the last 2 matches, and no matter how shit Trinidad and El Salvador are, Peru never scores that many goals in 2 matches so I think we can do well this Copa. If Ecuador decide to not show up like they usually do in tournaments, then we'll make it through the groups. Beating Brazil is possible too.

Argentina showing why you should never play with Honduras prior to a tournament as Messi may be injured because of that match.

And lastly, Chile lost both their friendlies. 1 at home to Jamaica and one on neutral ground to Mexico. Losing to Mexico is fair enough but losing to Jamaica at home is unacceptable for any South American side. Chile have lost so much once Sampaoli has gone. They're once again, a shit national team.

One more I should mention, Venezuela are embarrassing and will finish bottom of their group. I can understand losing to Costa Rica but drawing Guatemala shows how far they've fallen once Farias left them.

Yet they always manage to give Colombia a game. They love playing Los Cafeteros.
