It’s hardly the best preparation for any of the teams involved, and given the mismanagement and disorganisation from CONMEBOL, you couldn’t rule out another change before the tournament is due to start.

After Colombia was ruled out as joint host of the tournament with Argentina, the latter was then disqualified from hosting on its own because of rising coronavirus cases.

CONMEBOL announced via a tweet that, as a result, Brazil would now be the host country for the tournament.

However, they have one of the worst rates of coronavirus in the world, so it’s anybody’s guess as to what the governing body are playing at.
