From Colombia and Argentina to Chile or USA? Copa America hosts hit by Covid-19 chaos

Just two weeks remain before the competition’s scheduled curtain-raiser but it’s still not known if or where the event will be staged

On June 13, coach driver Gustavo Insua was called upon to ferry the River Plate team home following their Copa Libertadores draw against Junior in Colombia.

Two days later, Insua tested positive for Covid-19, along with more than a dozen Millonario players in an outbreak that would eventually affect no less than 22 members of the Nunez club’s first-team squad and leave them severely handicapped as the football calendar rumbled on.

The net result was midfielder Enzo Perez having to go in goal for the entirety of last week’s remarkable Libertadores win over Santa Fe.
