May 24, 2024


Referees called up for the CONMEBOL Copa América 2024™
There are 101 referees summoned for the continental tournament, with the notable presence of women for the first time.

The referees, both men and women, belong to CONMEBOL and UEFA, in a strategic exchange agreement between the confederations, and to Concacaf as guests.

The South American Football Confederation, through its Referees Commission, announced the list of referees called up for the CONMEBOL Copa América 2024™, breaking down main referees, assistant referees, and VAR referees.

For the first time in history, the men’s CONMEBOL Copa América 2024™ will feature female referees. They are: Edina Alves – BRA (Referee); Neuza Back – BRA (Assistant); Mary Blanco – COL (Assistant); and Migdalia Rodríguez – VEN (Assistant), representing CONMEBOL. Meanwhile, Maria Penso – USA (Referee); Brooke Mayo – USA (Assistant); Kathryn Nesbitt – USA (Assistant); and Tatiana Guzmán – NIC (VAR), representing Concacaf.

This is a significant commitment undertaken by CONMEBOL since 2016, aiming at the development and professionalization of more women on and off the field, promoting gender equality in various tournaments.

The referees will present themselves on June 12, 2024, in Dallas, USA, to participate in the pre-tournament seminar from June 13 to 17. The goal is to reinforce technical concepts comprehensively, work on physical aspects, and conduct various training activities on the field, in classrooms, and in VAR booths.

The training topics include matches with players, VAR booth simulations, technical and physical evaluations, as well as regenerative physiotherapy work, ensuring the referees achieve their best performance.

Bolivian teenager to miss Copa America because he doesn’t have parental permission to travel
Updated 8:02 AM GMT+9, June 11, 2024

LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) — Sixteen-year-old Bolivia midfielder Moisés Paniagua will miss the Copa América in the United States because he doesn’t have permission to travel from one of his parents.

Paniagua, who plays for local club Always Ready, could not arrange an entry visa to the United States because he didn’t have full parental authorization, the Bolivian Football Association said in a statement.

The Bolivian FA did not identify which parent.

He was picked for friendlies against Ecuador and Colombia in the U.S. but did not travel. Coach Zago will announce his final squad of 26 soon.

Paniagua made history in the Copa Libertadores in February by becoming the second youngest scorer at 16 years, 188 days. He scored in a 6-1 victory over Peru’s Sporting Cristal.

Bolivia is in Group C, which includes the U.S., Paraguay and Panama. Its first match will be against the host on June 23 in Arlington, Texas.

I was ready to question the judgment of said parent, but then I remember that in some US states, some parents can push their kids to "transition" even if the other parent naturally opposes it, so not going to a Copa América pales in comparison to that.

I have read a few news reports on this. The English news reports are translations of the original Spanish news repots, so it may not come out as "accurate". Here is a report in Spanish:

https://www.tudn.com/futbol/copa-americ ... rmiso-papa

Moisés Paniagua was dropped from Bolivia's squad for the Copa América 2024 due to the lack of his father's signature to be able to process the visa to the United States.

According to a statement from the Bolivian Football Federation, the 16-year-old youth player will not attend since his father was not in the country at the time to sign the authorization papers.

"The Bolivian Football Federation clarifies that the player Moisés Paniagua will not be part of the delegation that will play the international friendly matches and Copa América because, not having the age of majority and being absent from the country, one of the parents could not conclude with the procedures required for the entry visa to the United States of America."

So it is not a case of his parents (or maybe parent, possible that he is now living with a single parent only) actively oppose him going to USA. It is just that to apply a visa, the documents must be submitted by the deadline, and since the Bolivian FA could not get his father's signature in time since he was not in Bolivia at that time, they gave up and decided not to call him up.

Panama captain Aníbal Godoy was ruled out due to injury. The team initially called up Harold Cummings to replace him, having even submitted the form to CONMEBOL, but the player later declined the call-up, so Panama will only have 25 players in their squad for the Copa America.

If three international matches a day is not enough for you, the opening match of Copa America will kick off in about 2 hours. The defending Copa America champions and of course also World Cup champions Argentina will play Copa America debutants and CONCACAF guests Canada.

Argentina - Canada 2:0, could have been many more, but they've missed at least 4-5 one on ones. Alvarez and Lautaro Martinez scored the goals.

The stadium has a retractable roof and can be temperature controlled. Since the game start at 19:00 local time, there might not be a need to close the roof.

In the six previous editions, Messi achieved one title (2021), three runner-up finishes (2007, 2015, and 2016), a third place (2019), and in 2011, he reached the quarterfinals.


Matches and goals by tournament
