Chelsea pair anticipate start of Copa America
There are just four days until the Copa America kicks off in Argentina, and Chelsea's pair of Brazilian participants are feeling the buzz. David Luiz and Ramires are both part of the squad picked by Mano Menezes that will be hoping to defend its 2004 and 2007 crowns in Argentina, and both acknowledge the pressure associated with wearing their country's famous shirt. Brazil may be reigning champions, but with eight championships they have some way to go to go to reach Argentina's 14, and the hosts will be among the favourites once more. Brazil begin their tournament on Sunday when they meet Venezuela in La Plata. They then meet Paraguay and Ecuador in their remaining group games with quarter-finals due to begin on July 16. The final will take place in Buenos Aires on July 24, and we will be keeping you up to date on how our pair fare.
