Coach Marcelo Bielsa said that Uruguay has great players but that they have to build game after game to be considered a candidate to win the Copa América.

“It is not necessary to see it to describe Argentina as World Champion with justice, with a group of stable players at a good level. How can it not be a candidate?” Bielsa said in a conference after the game.

“We will build Uruguay game by game, and I hope that as the tournament progresses we can polish aspects. But it is clear that Argentina is one of the potential favorites, Uruguay has great players, but it has to build game by game a team that transforms into one that aspires to win the tournament,” he added.

Uruguay and Argentina are the top winners of the Copa América, with 15 titles each.

In the opening match of the tournament being played in the United States, Argentina, the current champion of America and the world, beat Canada 2-0 on Thursday.

“The tension, pressure and competitive stress in players like those in Uruguay, who are prepared to tolerate that mental weight of a debut, seems to me that it should not be registered as an added difficulty,” Bielsa said.

On the second day of Group C, which will be played on June 27, Uruguay will face Bolivia.
