Copa America: Favorites Struggling

Sam Kelly: It wasn't supposed to be this way. Everyone's now played two matches in the 2011 Copa América, and still none of the three pre-tournament favourites, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, has managed to win.

Jonathan Wilson: Sooner or later, one of the seeds is going to wake up. At the moment the record of Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay reads six games played, six games drawn. With Uruguay, in a tougher group and with fewer high-end resources, perhaps it's to be expected, but both Argentina and Brazil seem to be suffering from a surfeit of attacking talent.

Jonathan Wilson: Critics attack 'disastrous' Brazil after they scrape Paraguay draw -- Neymar was dreadful and Dani Alves exposed – and the attacking approach promised by Mano Menezes needs work
