Copa America

The Copa America quarterfinal round begins Friday. Peru will face a Paraguay squad who will be missing injured Newcastle player Miguel Almiron. Brazil has named Manchester City’s Ederson to start in goal over Liverpool’s Alisson Becker when the Selecao face Chile. Liverpool’s Bobby Firmino and Everton’s Richarlison have been key figures in a Brazil attack which hopes to have  Neymar back versus Chile. The Chileans, meanwhile, are hoping for a return by former Arsenal and Manchester United player Alexis Sanchez. Saturday will feature an attractive matchup between Uruguay and Colombia which will see Manchester United’s Edinson Cavani facing Colombia’s Premier League center backs Davinson Sanchez of Tottenham Hotspur and Yerry Mina of Everton. Argentina face Ecuador in the final match of the weekend as Lionel Messi continues to chase international success. Aston Villa’s Emiliano Martinez provides Argentina with perhaps its best goalkeeping option in many years. Ecuador has yet to win a match in this year’s tournament.
