Inviting a team to make it 12 or 16 is a big problem? Why exactly?

Because they have nothing to do with America?

It’ ridiculous. I was in the 99 Copa America when Japan played and it already was ridiculous. I also don’t think it’s a coincidence that they invite rich nations just before they organize global competitions — Japan 2002, Tokyo 2020, Qatar 2022

Either make a competition that suits the number of nations in the federation or organize it at a time that allows CONCACAF nations to participate.

CONMEBOL is a joke. Now Copa America will be again every two years and with a double final in two neutral stadiums !!?? It’s the oldest international tournament, deserves better.

If u see nothing wrong with inviting Germany to compete in the African cup of nations then not much we say will help explain to you...

CONMEBOL is a joke, all federations are corrupt and money talks but inviting a team, who cares.

How far is that really from saying the N in NBA and NFL mean shouldn't allow non American teams.

Copa America is supposed to be a continental competition. There are entrenched rivalries, more than a century of history... Even Mexico, the US, or Caribbean teams participate in those rivalries to some degree. But suddenly “invite teams” from the antipodes?

Which is also wrong IMO, but it’s supposed to be for practical reasons. Australia also play in Asia and it’s no big deal.

But really imagine “inviting” a shitty team from England to play the Brazilian championship... for no good reason but $$$

Oh, sure, but it is far from something new or created here. And if the Balkan countries can play among themselves in Europe, there is little pratical reason to allow Israel to be elsewhere.

they used to play in Asia and even qualified for world cup once from there. from Europe, no chance. there were other issues involved in the switching, like half of Asia members boycotting them lol.

Kazakhstan similar, without the boycotting. they would probably qualify to a world cup every now and then had they stayed in Asia.

Decent result for Qatar, 2-2. They were trailing 2-0 as well.

At least the UK exists so there is some justification given how small wales is preventing a viable league, but whats the excuse if Qatar eliminates a team in knockout round of Copa America?! Madness.
