Were you wondering who is playing in Copa América final? As stated above, the tournament, which originally featured 16 teams (up from the usual 12) has now been whittled down to two, Chile and Argentina. The Copa América schedule began one June 3 and saw the teams play through the group stage, which consisted of four groups from which the most successful advanced to the knockout state, a traditional tournament bracket.
Chile advanced with a 2-0 win over Colombia on Wednesday in a game that featured two-and-a-half hours between the first and second half due to a terrible thunderstorm. The extra planning time did little to help Colombia’s chances as Chile, coming off a 7-0 domination of Mexico in the quarterfinals and already having scored their two goals, maintained offense and even got more physical to control the pace of the game.
As for Argentina, they faced the United States in the semifinals and … well, there’s no polite way to describe how they made the American team look out there. Winning with a 4-0 score, Argentina had such a dominating performance that it left fans wondering how the U.S. made it to the semifinals in the first place—and if any other team could have fared any better.

Copa América Final Preview
If a search for “Copa América final preview” or “Chile Argentina preview 2016” bring up year-old results, don’t be surprised; in a mirror of the recent NBA finals, this is a rematch from last year’s championships, which Chile won 4-1. And while they’ve looked similarly strong throughout this year’s tournament, the current Argentina team has shown a far better overall performance than in 2015 and looks more than strong enough to win (having Lionel Messi doesn’t hurt either). Look for this to be a far closer game than the previous championship match between these two, with the winner being anyone’s guess.
