The Copa America draw was held this evening in Venezuela, and it's pretty clear the U.S. squad will not have an easy path to the elimination rounds.
Group A: Venezuela, Uruguay, Bolivia, Peru (no 2006 World Cup teams)
Group B: Brazil, Ecuador, Chile, Mexico (three WC teams)
Group C: Argentina, Paraguay, Colombia, United States (three WC teams)
Oh, to be in Group A.
Eight of 12 will advance to the quarters -- top two in each group plus the top two third-place teams.
USA opener is June 28 vs. Argentina (gulp).
