Copa America could be the United States' most challenging tournament in several years. When you factor in the strength of the opponents, the venues for the games and the strength of the U.S. team, it's really hard to argue against that.
On opponents' strength alone, the U.S. might find it hard getting results no matter who lines up and plays. A year ago, the U.S. faced the Czech Republic, Italy and Ghana at the World Cup. Colombia looks weak right now but Argentina and Paraguay are extremely tough. This group, though, might be just as strong as the World Cup group.
Anyway, what are your thoughts on the matter? Is the World Cup '06 group stronger than the Copa America '07 one? Does the U.S. have a tougher challenge this time around than at the World Cup last year?
