Copa America Centenario is days away. But, some drama has already begun. There appears to be a chance presumptive favorite Argentina withdraws from the tournament. Argentina’s government is investigating Argentina’s Football Association (AFA) for the mishandling of funds. The government suspended the AFA’s presidential elections during the interim, which the AFA believes is “government interference.” The AFA is holding an executive committee meeting today in response. Per the executive secretary, the AFA could pull the national team from Copa America and suspend activities in response to the government action.
