With the Copa America draw now set, the pressure is on for Chile

The 2015 Copa America draw was held on Monday night and the host nation Chile appear to be in a favourable group.

At the draw for next year's Copa America, the point was made by CONMEBOL president Juan Angel Napout that Chile were among the pioneers of the tournament. It is undeniable. Four countries competed in the inaugural version of the competition back in 1916; Uruguay, who won it and have since gone on to win a record 15 titles; Argentina, who have 14; Brazil, who have 8; and Chile, who have none.

In almost a hundred years of history, seven nations have claimed the world's oldest continental crown. Peru,...

How Alexis Sanchez became the Premier League's new Luis Suarez

ESPN FC's Santi Solari and Paul Mariner discuss the similarities between Alexis Sanchez and Luis Suarez and question if Sanchez can attain the same level of success Suarez achieved in the Premier League.

When Luis Suarez decided to swap Liverpool for Barcelona after yet another tumultuous summer of transfer speculation, the Uruguayan left a yawning gap in quality to be filled in the Premier League. Liverpool have not filled that gap -- not with Mario Balotelli, not with Rickie Lambert, not with Lazar Markovic. However, Arsenal -- for all their defensive problems -- managed to do so with the signing of Chilean Alexis Sanchez for 35 million euros as he departed the Camp Nou.

With World Cup behind them, Chile prepare to host Copa America

Alexis Sanchez and Chile prepare to play Peru for their international friendly on home soil Friday ahead of the Chileans' hosting Copa America next summer.

Some of South America's biggest hitters -- the likes of Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay -- are using this international break to travel to the farthest reaches of the globe. Uruguay are set to play in the Middle East, while the remaining trio tour Asia -- and a number of other CONMEBOL sides will take their show to North America. But this Friday there is one international game, the first since the World Cup final, being played on South American soil -- and it is no coincidence that it is...

Danny Welbeck signing should help Alexis Sanchez's form for club, country

England boss Roy Hodgson will not be the only one delighted with the way that Danny Welbeck performed midweek as a central striker. It is also good news for his new Arsenal teammate Alexis Sanchez.

Coach Arsene Wenger is saying that Welbeck would not have been signed on a permanent basis had he been in the country on transfer deadline day, but Sanchez has a vested interest in making the deal work. After all, it solves a problem by allowing him to play his natural game.

Without the physical presence...

Can El Tri beat the best with any regularity?

Mexico and Chile settled for a draw in Santa Clara, Calif., in a closely contested international friendly that saw both sides have their share of chances.

In the first international action for Mexico since this summer's World Cup, El Tri wound up with a 0-0 result versus Chile.

A draw versus Chile isn't anything to be ashamed of in and of itself, but there is some indication that Mexico is in a bit of a holding pattern. It has firmly established itself as a squad that can play with some of the best teams in the world.

What it hasn't established, however, is that it can beat these same top teams with any regularity. So while there is much to be...

Mexico play well vs. Chile but scoring issues remain

Mexico and Chile settled for a draw in Santa Clara, Calif., in a closely contested international friendly that saw both sides have their share of chances.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- If somebody had told me previously that Mexico's match against Chile would end in a 0-0 tie, I would have been happy. When asked by a couple of friends about a prediction for the match, I predicted a 2-2 tie, which at the time seemed like an overly optimistic decision.

The thought of Oswaldo Alanis and Miguel Angel Herrera defending Alexis Sanchez gave me plenty of justifiable worries. Yet after the final whistle, I felt a bit let down. I felt like the tie wasn't enough.
