World cup for women is more important important I think, happens this summer as well.

Yes the media and money are in favor of European Championship in spite of the fact that American teams are currently better and the last WC was a clear proof.

for a Headbutt after the final whistle...he lost his cool.


It was a normal headbutt that happens regularly..I didn't see players getting 4 games ban for kicking the ball after the final whistle and giving such a headbutt later..Some logic is needed here.

Last night's game Chile-Uruguay (1-0) was was exciting and one of these games that will forever be remembered, especially in Latin American football scene.
Was full of action, nice plays, good saves, controversies, frustration, etc....

This Copa America has been super entertaining so far

It is not only the head but, it started the poor sportsmanship of shooting the ball in full force on the back of the opponent after the game is finished and them head butting still showing lack of sportsmanship when the other guy was just talking to him. He was red carded for those two then the 4 match ban was for insulting the referee.
Stars get more exposure than normal players Zeineddine Zidane was banned three games after stepping on a Saudi player, same here you can't be a model and act like and ass

Edinson Cavani sent-off after Gonzalo Jara 'inserted finger into his anus' during Uruguay's 1-0 Copa America defeat to Chile



A year to the day since Luis Suarez bit Giorgio Chiellini at the 2014 World Cup, Uruguay were dumped out of the Copa America after seeing two of their players sent-off.

Both Edinson Cavani and Jorge Fucile saw red during the 1-0 defeat to hosts Chile, with Oscar Tabarez’s side letting their ill-discipline get the better of them. However, the result – and subsequent elimination of the defending Copa America champions – wasn’t the biggest talking point from the match.

That came when Gonzalo Jara, the Chile defender, appeared to poke his finger up the Uruguay striker’s backside in the 63rd minute. The bizarre incident got even worse, when Jara then dived on the floor and claimed that Cavani had hit him in the face.



Cavani, incensed at what Jara had just done to him, was then left in a state of fury after the referee showed him a second yellow card having already been booked in the first half for berating the assistant referee after a tackle on Arturo Vidal.

For Cavani, it proved to be a tough 48 hours, and questions remained as to whether he should have been playing in the first place. His father, Luis Cavani, had been arrested on Monday night after being involved in a car crash that left a 19-year-old motorcyclist dead after he was “knocked down and killed” in the accident in Salto, Uruguay.

The truck he was driving belonged to his son, and it was uncertain whether the Paris Saint-Germain striker would even play in the match given that Tabarez admitted Cavani was “affected” by the ordeal.

Minutes after Cavani was sent off, former Queens Park Rangers defender Mauricio Isla scored the only goal of the game to book Chile’s place in the Copa America semi-finals.
