The Copa América ended after the heroic triumph of the Argentine National Team against Brazil at the Maracana. Therefore, it was time to unravel some certainties that the contest threw up: appearances, promises that were not, figures, the ideal eleven and more.
But, now, we must review five players who disappointed the oldest national team tournament:
When we all thought that this should be the transition from promise to reality, the left winger faltered again with the Brazilian National Team. Richarlison took his place in the starting eleven and never managed to stand out in the opportunities (4PJ) that DT TIté gave him. He was Neymar’s successor, right?
He made 100 games with the Argentine National Team, yes. He was the champion of the Copa América, too. But Kun He did not show an optimal state of form to tie himself to the center forward position. Scaloni gave him the chance (4 PJ), he did not take advantage of it and Lautaro Martínez won the pulse. Is it coming to Qatar in 2022?
After an excellent season in Atalanta (ITA), the Colombian National Team relied on Duvan’s scoring participation in the competition. It was not so. The former Estudiantes de La Plata played all possible matches (7/7) and did not convert. Minus ten for those interested in it.
The eccentric midfielder did not make contributions in the area of goals and assists for the Chilean National Team in competition. Strangely, for what we are used to, it registered a high average of times that they dribbled (1.8). At 34, he’s going through the downward curve of his career, and it shows.
One of the aces of the Uruguay National Team, for the first time in his career, did not become the Copa América. Far from the level that returned to hallucinate the fans, Fought could not give guarantees to him Teacher Tabárez and he felt: the charrúas outside in Cuartos de Final.
