Argentina will host the Copa America 2011

I remember I was 10 when the Copa America was last hosted by Argentina. My father went to the inaugural match and back in that tournament, we were surprised by an excellent Uruguayan side that lifted the trophy in Buenos Aires.

In 2011, 24 years after that 1987 edition, Argentina will receive the Copa America and will look to FINALLY win back that trophy.

After consecutive defeats to Brazil in the final of the tournaments played in Peru and Venezuela, Argentina will be trying to become the most successful nation in the history of the Copa America. So far, the Albicelestes and Uruguay both have 14 titles, while Brazil is third with 8 (but have won four of the last five -the exception being Colombia 2001 when the host won their only Copa America).

Argentina has hosted the Copa America in 8 ocassions and only failed to win two (1916 and 1987, both won by Uruguay).

The Albicelestes won the title at home in 1921, 1925, 1929, 1937, 1946, 1959 y 1987.

More news regarding dates, draw and all the information we can gather, will follow.

It has been that long since Argentina hosted. Wow, I really do hope the advantage of playing at home might just work in our favour.

By the way Seba, how is the mood in back home after the Davis Cup lost? Any interesting news you might wanna share with us on that.

Till now, I still can't believe from what I've just seen.
