Looks to be three and out for the U.S. team at Copa América, and more

Two big international tournaments going on this week, both on basic cable – in Spanish.

Looks like it'll be three and out at the Copa América for the young U.S. team; they were crushed by Argentina, 4-1, then played much better against Paraguay, but still lost 3-1. That leaves them with a slim chance of advancing, even if they beat Colombia to finish third in their group (Thu., July 5, 5:30pm, Telefutura). Mexico, the other guest in this South American championship, stunned Brazil, 2-0, in the opener.

In the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Canada, the U.S. drew with South Korea, 1-1, then got a Freddy Adu hat trick to romp, 6-1, over a Polish team who had earlier surprised Brazil, 1-0. Next, the U.S. faces Brazil in the group stage finale (Friday, July 6, 6:30pm, Galavision).

The Austin Lightning are on the road for two weeks, after getting rained out last Friday.
