I hear ya, even tho Mexico is taking an U21 team, I'll prolly still be watching all their games along with the other big teams! Gotta watch something during the offseason!

True, but look at group b, either way it should an awesome tourney.

honestly, I don't look of them as a Grupo de la Muerte, to me a group has to have no clear favorite and 4 true contenders for me to be calling them that.

I only the top2 from each group advanced then I'd call C the toughest group, but Peru has been so BAD this last few years, + Mexico not bringing their A team I don't think it's gonna be that tough.

I have Columbia as my dark horse to win this whole thing. This is going to be competitive from top to bottom without a doubt. But I think the Colombians can sneak up on people.
