Why Japan and Qatar are playing in Copa America 2019 ?

Japan and Qatar are playing the Copa America 2019 in Brazil. Many people may consult the Geography teacher or some sort of may in order to ensure these two nations don’t belong to South America. But no one is such unaware of it but how can the Asian countries play in Copa America.

Both Japan and Qatar had played the Asian Cup recently and it’s not that they have qualified from Asian Cup. Obviously the two teams were the finalists in the competition though it’s not that the finalists of the Asian Cup were invited. It just went to become a coincidence. But the reason behind them playing in Copa America 2019 with 10 other South American nations is different. Since the South American Football Federation (CONMEBOL) has only ten members, additional invitees are required in order to create the workable tournament structure.

Initially, total 16 teams tournament was planned with 6 teams as invitees; three from North America and 3 from Asia, as was the case for 2016 Competition held in United States. However, it was decided that the tournament would follow 12 teams competition structure with two teams, Japan and Qatar, as invitees.

Qatar has been drawn in Group B consisting of mighty Argentina, Colombia and Paraguay whereas Japan is in Group C alongside defending champions Chile, Uruguay and Ecuador. Previously, Japan had played the same tournament in 1999 in Paraguay where they had finished at the bottom of their group table. But Qatar has never played before in the tournament. In 2015 edition Copa America, Mexico and Jamaica were the two teams to be invited in the tournament. So it’s not that the two teams have changed its continent.

Since, inviting of the nations in Copa America is not a new thing, there’s no need to be bewildered regarding the Geographical presence. Now, what really matters is how much impact these two teams are going to make in the tournament.

Can Brazil win Copa America 2019 ?

Copa America is no way far from the kick off. The mega event of the South America starting from June 14 in Brazil. We have brought you few previews about the host.

Brazil

The big football tournament is moving to football crazy nation Brazil when they will be hosting Copa America 2019.

The tournament is going to be big for the home fans in their home ground after being lost with humiliation against Germany in FIFA World Cup 2014 when they lost 7-1 in Semi-final. Brazil could not make a huge impact in the FIFA World Cup 2018 too. So Copa America 2019 is going to be very much important for Brazil and its home fans. COPA America 2019 was to be hosted by Chile and Brazil was to host in 2015 but due to organization of 2014 FIFA world Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics, Brazil decide against hosting it and they are now hosting it in 2019.

So it may be proved as yet another chance for Brazil to lift the major trophy in the home soil. Without any doubt, Brazil is one of the favorites in the front seat to lift the trophy but it is not going to be a piece of cake for the host nation. Brazil is in the Group A alongside Bolivia, Venezuela and Peru. Brazilian team is well organized with the balance squad that includes the star players like of Neymar, Coutinho, Firmino and Gabriel Jesus.

Neymar particularly will be in focus of all attentions, since he had suffered many accusations regarding diving and not being able to make much impact in the World Cup. However, the PSG star is plagued by injury and is out of action for his team. Brazilian team is being well built up by former Brazilian star Tite who took the job of managing the Brazilian squad after former coach Dunga failed to impress in previous tournaments.

Brazil fan expect confidence from their manager at all times and Tite has sought to boost morale and encourage of the team when the host nation will be going through much pressure too. Eight players in Tite’s 23-man squad have 5 or less caps, but he argued against the suggestions that he is rewarding senior caps too easily. Brazil hasn’t impressed in the recent Copa America tournaments and it may be the chance for it to come better. Now question is whether the host nation will be ready to face this daunting task.

The group B comprises of Argentina, Colombia, Paraguay and Qatar. Argentina had reached in the final of past two events and Qatar are currently the AFC Asian Cup champions. Similarly, Colombia and Bolivia too have strong squad.

Therefore, there will be tough competition in group B on which team to go through as group winner, runner-up. The opening match of group B will be played between Argentina and Colombia on the second day of the tournament. The match will be played at Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova, Salvador.

  • 15 June 2019 19:00 BRT- Argentina vs Colombia
  • 16 June 2019 16:00 BRT- Paraguay vs Qatar
  • 19 June 2019 28:30 BRT- Colombia vs Qatar
  • 19 June 2019 21:30 BRT- Argentina vs Paraguay
  • 23 June 2019 16:00 BRT- Qatar vs Argentina
  • 23 June 2019 16:00 BRT- Colombia vs Paraguay

As all the four teams are equally balanced, it is difficult to predict which team will fail to go through the knock-out stage and which team will top the group B. The headache for all the three teams will be the Argentine forward Lionel Messi. If they manage to pick-pocket messi, it would be a bit easier for them. Similarly, Colombia’s James Rodriguez, Paraguay’s Fabián Balbuena and Almoez Ali from Qatar are players to watch out for in the Copa America 2019.
