Copa America Centenario group previews
The much anticipated Copa America Centenario kicks off June 3, with the host United States taking on Colombia at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The match kicks off a march toward the June 26 final at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., where the champion of this one-of-a-kind competition will be crowned.

In Group C, Mexico will enjoy crowd support while trying to fend off a Uruguay side that is sweating the injury to Luis Suarez. In Group D, it's all eyes on Lionel Messi's Argentina, which is hoping to lift a trophy on the senior level for the first time in 23 years.
