Copa America 2011: Player Profiles

The 2011 Copa America is just 10 days away and we're all about getting the hype machine rolling. Since this tournament features all of the teams in South America, it obviously features some of the best players in the world. Many well-known, world renown superstars like Lionel Messi, Luiz Suarez and others make up the rosters, but there are also a great deal of up and coming talents who will soon be cashing much larger paychecks, quite possibly as a result of their performances in this tournament.

Over the next 10 days, we'll be profiling over a dozen different players that you should keep an eye on during the 2011 Copa America. Some of them will be big stars like the aforementioned Messi, but others will be players who are still a couple of steps away from being household names. We'll be looking at players who play in North America, South America and Europe, leaving no one unrecognized because they aren't playing for the big clubs. The fun starts tomorrow with Alexis Sanchez and will continue until the opening day of the tournament.
