2011 CONMEBOL U20 Championship


Recommended Posts

Starts today in Peru:


2 groups of 5 in the first phase, top 3 in each group advances to the final phase. The top 4 teams will qualify for the U20 WC in Colombia. Since Colombia already qualify as WC hosts then if they finish in the Top 4 the 5th place team will qualify.

Bet 365 offering betting for this tourny.

Being in Brazil at the moment, I was able to watch a little of the Argentina - Uruguay match. It seemed like a competitive match and with Chile winning against Peru, Argentina and one of Uruguay and Chile will be among the top four.

In the other group, Brazil is stacked, as usual so the other teams will be fighting for other qualifying positions. Neymar is playing for Brazil and they have two other shifty strikers, Mauricio (Flamengo) and Henrique (Sao Paulo, on loan last year at Vitoria). Most interesting for me the their fourth Striker, Willian Jose (last year Gremio Prudente this month loaned to Sao Paulo). He is about 187 cm or 6'2" and about 86kg and rifle of a shot along with all the technical skills you would dream of for a centre forward. I suspect there will be some interesting pairings in attack. Colombia and Paraguay are likely the main challengers on that side of the draw.
