no, not really...last year, so many players were exhausted from playing in the leagues and some injured. that was dissapointing, but that gave a chance for the younger players to come and play. requelme was there, samuel was there also and some other guys like palermo, so it isnt who shows up for us because we usually have a great team playing there. even though players like batigol, veron, crespo, etc. didnt play, we have backups that are good enough to win it for us.
Can someone tell me why Uruguay has such a hard time fielding a full strength national team? Brazil, Argentina, Chile etc.. all must deal with European based players, but only Uruguay seems to have such huge problems getting them for the national squad. Why?
Hey! Chill Argentina! I never said anything about Palermo not being great! In fact he is one of my all time favorite strikers, behind Raul, Amoroso and Morientes. I love the guy and hope he makes a quick transfer to Europe, where it really matters...
proabbly because their FA is not strong
today Uruguya do not hold the power they had...
I f Brazil and Argenitna complain to FIFA something they wil be attended, cause if we boycott any tournament it will be a HUGE loss!

Well, Brazil should win it again, we've won it the last 2 tournaments with no sweat. In 97 the players did not even train, they were just playing foot-volley in the training sessions, and Romario faked an injury to not play the final in the altitude In 99, we played bad, and still won it
Also, by the time the next Copa America comes by, we should already be qualified to the WC, then the Copa America should be just a training tournament of tactical variations and new team line up, and then get the team almost in shape to win the 2002 WC.
My best memory from Copa America was a game I saw in 1991 I think between Brazil and Argentina. I watched Screen Sport here in Norway in the middle of the night and Argentina won eventually 3-2, but there were at least 5 red cards in the game and lots of drama.
That was the game I discovered Batistuta for the first time. I think he was pretty unknown at that time. And my other favourite Argentina player Dario Franco. What happened to him anyway??
