Copa America 2011 Features Top Teams in Latin America

The 2011 Copa America tournament is set to begin on July 1 with a match between Argentina and Bolivia.

The tournament features all 10 teams from CONMEBOL and two from an outside conference. This year Costa Rica and Mexico will take part in the tournament.

Mexico is coming off a dominant performance in the Gold Cup and will be hoping that can translate to success in Copa America as well.

Brazil enters the tournament winning four of the last five Copa America trophies, while Argentina is coming off consecutive runner-up performance.

Argentina will be hoping they can break the current trend and finally knock off the Brazilian side.

Fortunately for Argentina, they will have home-field advantage this time around as the tournament takes place in Argentina for the first time since 1987 when Uruguay took home the Copa American trophy and Argentina came in fourth place.
