South American teams will support Sepp Blatter for re-election, report says

Sepp Blatter can count on the support of the CONMEBOL federation.

ASUNCION, Paraguay -- The countries which make up the South American football confederation have decided to support Sepp Blatter in FIFA's presidential elections, a source familiar with the decision told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement by the executive committee of CONMEBOL had not been made. The decision was reached after the 10-nation governing body in South America heard proposals from Blatter and other candidates on...

Reviewing the results of CONMEBOL teams since the World Cup

With his comeback from suspension close, Luis Suarez has come to terms with his actions, which saw him sent home from the World Cup in disgrace.

After the FIFA dates of September and October, how have the South American national teams progressed as they warm up for next year's Copa America followed by the 2018 World Cup qualifiers?

ARGENTINA: Won 4-2 away to Germany, lost 2-0 to Brazil and beat Hong Kong 7-0

New coach Gerardo Martino has built on the work of predecessor Alejandro Sabella but has also made a tweak. The base formation remains 4-3-3 (which Sabella's Argentina abandoned in the World Cup due to injuries), but with a difference.

Paraguayan football turned into a giant Heartbreak Hotel in 2014

While their neighbours from all around South America got to see their national teams in action at the World Cup in Brazil, Paraguay fans were not as lucky.
While their neighbours from all around South America got to see their national teams in action at the World Cup in Brazil, Paraguay fans were not as lucky.

This was the year when the Paraguayans could have gone to the World Cup to cheer on their team. They could have flooded across the border to Brazil as the Argentines and the Chileans did -- had their team qualified for the tournament. But this time they missed out.

Paraguay had made it through to the four previous World Cups, a splendid achievement for a country with a population of under seven million people. And in those four tournaments, they were never easily beaten. Football brings to the...

It meant the night would end in frustration for France manager Didier Deschamps as his...
