Over the next few days, the EOS staff will help get you set for the Copa America Centenario that begins this Friday with the United States and Colombia from Levi Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

By virtue of being the hosts of the tournament, the United States enters as the top seed. The Americans will have their work cut out for them with Colombia, Costa Rica, and Paraguay rounding out the group. Group A will be one of the more competitive pods in the tournament, as the United States has to go through opposition that features two 2014 FIFA World Cup Quarterfinalists and a 2015 Copa America Semifinalist.

While past success is now a mere footnote, that doesn’t make the road to the knockout round any easier for the Stars and Stripes.
