USA To Host 2024 Copa America Tournament

Published

By

The United States will host the 2024 Copa America, which will feature 10 teams from South America and six from North and Central America and the Caribbean.

It will be the second time the Copa America has been hosted outside of South America.

 

Ecuador was originally scheduled to host the tournament but its government said in November it would be unable to.

 

The 2021 tournament took place in Brazil and was won by Argentina.

 

The Copa America typically includes the 10 Conmebol teams but this time will expand to include a further six from North and Central America and the Caribbean, who must qualify through

 

That means the US, who were knocked out by the Netherlands in the round of 16 in Qatar, are not guaranteed a place at the tournament despite hosting it.

 

The US, who held the tournament in 2016 for a special centenary edition, are also the joint hosts for the 2026 World Cup with Mexico.

Al-Nassr Coach Blames Ronaldo For Saudi Cup Exit

Nassr manager, Rudi Garcia, has highlighted Cristiano Ronalo’s miss from point-blank range as the turning point of Thursday’s Super Cup defeat to Al-Ittihad.

Ronaldo failed to score for the second game as his side lost 3-1, thanks to goals from Romarinho, Hamdallah and Al-Shaqeeti.

The 37-year-old came close, leaping high into the air and diverting a header at goal, only to be denied by Grohe in goal.

Al-Ittihad then immediately made it 2-0 just 28 seconds later.

“One of the things that changed the course of the match was Cristiano’s missed opportunity in the first half.

“I congratulate Al-Ittihad. They presented a much better first half than us, and we played a good second half, but unfortunately, we were not able to adjust the result.

“It’s true that we regret losing the Super Cup, but we are still the first in the league,” Garcia said.
