The Copa America 2021 finally got under way after a year's delay when Brazil beat Venezuela 3-0 in Brasilia.

Ten South American sides will contest the delayed 47th tournament, which was moved from original hosts Argentina and Colombia because of civil unrest and pandemic restrictions.

Brazil has also been hit hard by Covid and no fans will be able to attend matches.

Australia and Qatar, the two previous winners of the Asian Cup, were originally set to take part but withdrew because of a clash of fixtures with 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

That leaves Argentina, Bolivia, defending champions Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela to battle it out with the final at the iconic Maracana stadium on July 11.
