if I looked right it appears the US team hasn't beat Columbia since 2005. Need to have a good match tonight.

If last year I still forced myself to stay up late to watch at least two games this time I just cannot bring myself to care, with the Euros behind the corner and the current level of the Copa teams.

Yeah, Copa America is a joke this year. Personally don't care. Not my measuring stick of USMNT right now.

Quite boring so far. Uruguay are a joke compared to what they once were. Brazil far from entertaining too.

No more giving up on sleep hours for this bull**** :naughty

Because it is not a real Copa America and there are the Olympics coming up.

Also the timing of games does not help. I would really love to watch the games, but 4 am games for the big nations is just... nooo.

Good win by USA. These copa teams overall though are lacking.

Don't matter if it's real copa. The regular tournament sees top players calling in sick regularly.

It looks like the Americans are through to the quarter-finals. Can't say I expected that.

Why on earth not? The US is a damn good team these days. Quater finals was the minimum they should achieve.. hell Semi Finals imo.

yep... but the Peru goal should not have counted.

Yeah, but I'd rather have us playing Ecuador than Brazil or Peru.

doesn't matter, brazil didn't deserve to advance

a win vs haiti and two 0 goal efforts vs ecuador and peru...

brazil's decades of being on top are over. I wonder if they'll even qualify for the world cup

Plus, Ecuador had a legit goal against Brazil disallowed too so it all balanced out.

I think the same thing happens to the US team tonight. Maybe not as bad.

Argentina have to be the biggest losers ever. They have to.

Naw that is still Spain and England. Argentina has historically actually won stuff, several times. Now Spain until recently, and England still...

1990, 2004, 2007, 2014, 2015, 2016. Six last times Argentina are in the finals of the WC/CA, six times they're losing. Don't think there's anything that comes close to that.
And in 2011 they were hosting the Copa and lost in the QF.
