True. There’s really no point in comparing the two tournaments for a number of reasons, all of which the author pointed on. The key point is probably the changes made for a number of South American teams that mean they aren’t necessarily bringing their best squads. Injuries don’t count as that could happen at anytime. Also, given how well European teams fared in the last World Cup I think Jurgen Klinsmann is definitely off in his statement that the Copa will be better.
I think, and hope, both tournaments will be excellent and there’s plenty of talent on display with the Copa. I would think there would be more MLS players to choose from but that might be a long list to sift through.
