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.

oop for today?
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)

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

Paraguay should definetly get promoted, but Canada got stonger with Sebov instead of Abanda. Could be interesting.
