The looming World Cup is generating plenty of the attention in the soccer world, but later this week a tournament that is still two years away will take center stage as CONCACAF and CONMEBOL prepare to announce the 2016 Copa America, which is set to be played in the United States.
Episode 135 of The SBI Show discusses the proposed tournament, which has been rumored for a few years but appears ready to become a reality on Thursday. With South American teams facing off against CONCACAF teams, American fans will have a chance to see some of the best players in the world competing for silverware on American soil.
Co-host Garrett Cleverly and I also discuss a big weekend for Americans Abroad, including memorable weekends for Terrence Boyd, John Brooks and Joe Gyau. We also discuss MLS Week Eight, including Seattle’s latest outstanding performance and Portland’s latest disappointing result.
Give Episode 135 of The SBI Show a listen after the jump:
