Chile is the defending champion of Copa America. They earned that title after defeating (a sad performance by) Argentina during this year’s edition held in their home. That alone should give them the right to be a group head. However, the organizers decided for the marketing-wise approach and gave Mexico a group head. Mexico?
Mexico has only been participating since the 90s… and never won it.
Chile is more of the Centenario celebration than either Mexico or the USA combined! Heck, even Bolivia has won a Copa America, somthing Mexico hasn’t managed yet… And Mexico has made group head?
I bet this slap in the face will be additional motivation for the Chilean team to go very far on this Centenario edition of Copa America.
