As we head into the Copa America quarterfinals, with the next few days set to determine the outcome of each group stage, the team here at The Stoppage Time has already seen some trends emerge. We’ve also put together our predictions for the country that will make it to the final on June 26.

In the meantime, here are some of our team predictions:

Andres Villaneuva (@AndyNewhouse) says, “My heart says Mexico, but my mind says Argentina. They seem to be the only dominant team and are stacked on paper. They have been winning without the (arguably) best player in the world even playing/starting.”

Gabriel Montoya (@Gabe_Montoya13) chose Colombia. He says, “Colombia have the perfect mix of stars and role players. They know who to get the ball to and there are no giant egos on the team. Colombia are hoping their flair can match their work ethic in the knockout rounds.”

Pablo Jacobo (@pjacobosports) says, “I think it’s Mexico‘s tournament to lose, in large part because of the home field advantage. In addition this is the most talented group of young players assembled for this competition.”

Cameron Milledge (@whatcameronsaid) chose Argentina. “They have a world class attack, they have a kid in the squad (Erik Lamela), and they have a good enough defense to seal the deal.”

Hunter York (@hunteryork1128) says, “I am going with Argentina. I think that their style of play is just a fluid and the team seems to be firing on all cylinders right now even without Messi and Aguero involved. Once both of those two are playing in the knock out stages, I expect them to be unstoppable during the rest of the Copa.”

Sierra Godfrey (@sierragfootball) says, “Argentina is my choice for the win. Their skill is apparent whether Messi plays or not. While I think they have to make sure they pay attention and keep the fire stoked, the caliber of players is excellent. It’s their tournament to lose. That said, they are going to have to keep Mexico in careful check.”
