Re: 2017 Americas Zone Group I

Argentina played Paraguay in the promotion playoffs last year. A repeat could be in store for 2017. Canada and Brazil are the teams most likely to upset them in the groups.

Only Group B today. Argentina v Chile and Brazil v Colombia.

I think they start at 10am local time. Well the Brazil v Colombia match does, not sure about the other one but I think it should also. Players haven't been selected yet (well not put online)

Re: 2017 Americas Zone Group I

Canada hit the draw jackpot here, but realistically, they should advance regardless. That said, much crazier things have happened in the Americas Group before

I think Paraguay might actually be the favorite in this group.
