A popular voice proclaims, with South American pride, that the strongest pre-global group in the entire planet is that of this region blessed by the Lord. That classifying by looking at the face of Brazil Argentina, Uruguay, Chile and Colombia must be like climbing Bolívar Peak without climbing instruments, and also, due to the most arduous drift. That the teams in Europe are nourished by the magical realism football of Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez, Luis Muriel, Ángel Di María, Edison Cavani, Yangel Herrera, Alexis Sánchez and all that litter of ingenious players who make the souls of that continent happy every Weekend. Over there, all good. Accepted. There is no discussion (in fact, whoever writes has as a rule not to establish discussions related to football, because the comparison between players and teams seems sterile: Shirt 10 thinks that each one is worth in their time and in the context in which they have corresponded Act)…

And, putting an imaginary line between what is to be discussed and what is truly objective, and even admitting that qualifying for the World Cup in South America is very difficult, as Chileans say, we ask a question: if this is an irrefutable truth, why What is Europe that wins the World Cup, and why is it the owner of the Club World Cup? Could it be, perhaps, because the football of mischief and cheating, in a good way, of the players on this continent, has already been buried in the new era, that which imposes force, power and speed of light as premises of the good play? "Resulting" is a football disease of this time, a "pandemic" that has broken lyricism into a thousand pieces, like a falling mirror. Playing nice and pleasing the palate is not enough, and this is still a reason for a duel. That is why South America has stopped in football time, even if some romantics insist on wanting to demonstrate, against all truth, but with the dream very much alive, that next year in Qatar things are going to change ...

Two trends: it is ensured in the football groups that the last whistle of the Copa América hardly usually happens, José Peseiro, technical director of the Vinotinto, is going to be fired. And the echoes resonate with the names of Rafael Dudamel and Eduardo Saragó as possible alternatives. Despite this statement, the other version speaks of a long work, until the World Cup in XNUMX, with the Portuguese theorist as conductor. They are the gossip typical of football, in Venezuela and even in Jupiter and Saturn, that only time and results can clear. Peseiro, Dudamel, Saragó? Are there no possibilities for the appearance of an outsider?
See you there.
