Oh dear, a tale of woe from the copa America

Let’s hope they keep flying as some of the football has been great. It must be such a burden on a country though, to put such a tournament together, makes you wonder that love of footie apart, why do they host tournaments.

And I know it’s not just about the money, there’s prestige etc, but what price prestige when you’re bankrupt?
