Group C of the Copa America Centenario holds the potential to be the most entertaining group in the first round, with matchups between CONCACAF Gold Cup finalists and CONMEBOL rivals.

Highlighting this group is a rematch of the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup final between Mexico and Jamaica. The Reggae Boyz have been on the ascension in international soccer with a huge win over the United States last year and a competitive mindset against Mexico. Now, they hope to take that momentum into the Copa America Centenario where they have to adjust to no longer being viewed as the tournament underdog.

The two South American teams participating, Venzuela and Uruguay, are certainly no slouches. Uruguay holds the record for most Copa America victories with 15, just one better than Argentina. This year they will be relying heavily on players like Edinson Cavani while Luis Suarez may be sidelined with an injury sustained during the Copa del Rey final.
