The Copa América draw has a particular ending, this one, because the people who make up the groups are confused and put together a bad run at home.

The rules state that no more than 3 teams from Conmebol or 2 from Concacaf can stay together, which is achieved when the first 3 teams in each group are known.

However, when the groups were completed, it became clear that the last teams in each series had to be moved again to comply with the regulations.

The Colombian National Team was initially assigned to face Brazil, Paraguay and Jamaica, but after changes Jamaica left the group and gave way to the winner of the playoff between Costa Rica and Honduras.

This is how home runs work:

  • Group A: Argentina, Peru, Chile and Canada or Trinidad and Tobago
  • Group B: Mexico, Ecuador, Venezuela and Bolivia
  • Group C: USA, Uruguay, Panama and Costa Rica or Honduras
  • Group D: Brazil, Colombia, Paraguay and Jamaica

This is how they look after the change:

  • Group A: Argentina, Peru, Chile and Canada or Trinidad and Tobago
  • Group B: Mexico, Ecuador, Venezuela and Jamaica
  • Group C: YES. US, Uruguay, Panama and Bolivia
  • Group D: Brazil, Colombia, Paraguay and Costa Rica or Honduras

Then, on the second date, they will face the winner of the Concacaf playoff between Costa Rica and Honduras by Reinaldo Rueda, coach of Colombia in the qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. It is worth noting that the Costa Rican team is led by Gustavo Alfaro, a coach who knows Colombian football well.

And on the last date of the group stage, Colombia will once again face its counterpart from Brazil, a rival that it defeated for the first time in the Qualifiers on date 5. The tricolor also defeated the Brazilians in the Cup America in 2015 by a score 1-0 with a goal from Jeisson Murillo.
