The Best Team wins the Copa America …

Filed under: Uncategorized — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 9:03 pm

Not the team with most talented players.  The best team.

This is not the same team that we played all those years ago in back to back WC Qualifiers.  No space in the starting lineup for a Recoba with guys like Suarez and Forlan around.

It is a great thing to see that there is space at the top of the game for smaller population countries.   Of course, Uruguay’s history, the gruelling preparation of the South American WC Qualification process, and the lack of competition for attention from other sports make comparisons between Oz and Uruguay a bit silly.

But, get our league and development structures right, get the right mix of players coming through, and who knows what is possible for Oz?
