Football proving once again that it's the most corrupt sport : Brazil is hosting Copa América



The decision was made less than 24 hours after South America's football governing body announced Argentina would no longer stage the event, according to them because the country has experienced an increase in covid cases, with 348 deaths reported on Sunday and 21,346 new infections.

The statement says: "The CONMEBOL@America Cup 2021 will be played in Brazil! Tournament start and end dates are confirmed. The venues and the fixture will be informed by CONMEBOL in the next few hours. The oldest national team tournament in the world will thrill the entire continent!"

The tournament involving 10 South American countries, was originally set to be staged by Argentina and Colombia, the first time in its 105-year history to have joint hosts.

Colombia had a request to have the tournament postponed rejected by CONMEBOL and pulled out as co-hosts on May 20 due to social and economic unrest in the nation.

In Brazil 462k people have died of Covid and the total cases are of 16.5 millions of people, with 14.5 millions of people recovered and 43520 new cases.

Her $1 million donation to Vanderbilt University has contributed to the development of Moderna's vaccine - you can't save 2020 much more than that. Oh, but in case you needed another reason to love Dolly this year, she also spoke up in support of Black Lives Matter, saying, “Of course Black lives matter. Do you think our little white asses are the only ones that matter? No!” How to even sum up John Boyega's 2020? He's spoken out very publicly about his thoughts on how his role in Star Wars dwindled over the course of the trilogy, but more importantly, he spoke up even louder at a Black Lives Matter demonstration in London, making waves with his passionate speech. Being so outspo
