Argentina qualify for the 2015 Copa America knockout stages as the group winners after beating Jamaica in the last group game. Jamaica should be proud of their Copa America campaign after they managed to held their own. A solitary goal from Gonzalo Higuain was enough for Argentina to see off Jamiaca.
Argentina will play best 3rd place team from either Group A or Group C and that will be decided today when last set of Group C games are played in the Copa America.
Match preview: Argentina defeated Uruguay in their second Group B game where Segio Aguero scored the only goal of the game while Lionel Messi and company drew 2-2 against Paraguay in the opening group game.
Now They are virtually assured a place in the knockout rounds but they will be looking to ensure they go through to the quarter finals as group winners where they will face runnerup of C which might turn out to be any of the four teams in that group.
Jamiaca on the other hand were this years new invited team from other continent and they were not suppose to be a real threat. But two games into the competition and they have held their own conceding only two goals and kind of making life difficult for both Uruguay and Paraguay.
This should be a mismatch on paper but Copa America 2015 has already thrown in some surprising results so I won’t be surprised if Jamaica do pull up a scare or two for Argentina.
Team News: As far as the Team news is concerned Argentina are likely to make quite a few changes. We can expect a different backline and a few changes in midfield. According to reports Goalkeeper Romero, Mascherano, Otamendi, Rojo and Roncaglia are all expected to sit out due to yellow card suspension looming while Carlos Tevez might start upfront in place for Aguero who was substituted in last match against Uruguay due to shoulder proble.
Match should be a straight forward easy win for Argentina if they play to their potential, Jamaica on the other hand has nothing to play for apart from Pride and of course sharing the field with some world class players. Watch live streams and match highlights of this match right on this page.
