Some time ago, Gerardo Martino was the coach of the Paraguay national team, which he led to a runner-up finish in the Copa América. Later, he had a brief stint with the Argentine national team. Today, I have leads Inter Miami.

Although Martino no longer coaches a national team, he is well aware of what is happening. In a press conference before the MLS match, he spoke about the Copa América and, in a way, surprised with his prediction of him.

“I would read towards Uruguay and Colombia,” he said when asked about his favorites to win the continental tournament, in addition to Argentina, but without including Brazil, a usually logical candidate due to the number of stars. “Unlike other tournaments, there are several teams outside of Argentina and Brazil that are doing very well, with a lot of potential and willing to fight for the title, so I think it’s going to be a great Copa América,” he added.

The 61-year-old coach has lost three Copa América finals as a coach: the 2011 Argentina final leading Paraguay, against Uruguay, and the 2015 Chile and 2016 Centennial in the United States finals, both as Argentina’s coach and against Chile. About the team currently led by Lionel Scaloni, I considered: “They will play with the calmness of what they have achieved, and I think we have repeated that several times recently, especially since Argentina became world champion. Having achieved that goal frees the players and they start to show their best.”
