Venezuela Copa America 2021 Team Squad Lineup fixtures & TV Schedule: We are heading towards the beginning of the much-awaited football tournament Copa America 2021. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event which was earlier scheduled to begin in 2020, had to reschedule by organizers in 2021 and according to the new fixtures, it will begin from 13th June to 10th July 2021. Total 10 teams will be participating in the Copa America 2021 tournament, be hosted in two countries, Argentina and Colombia.
Out of the 10 teams, here we have come up with detailed information of one of the participating teams Venezuela. The team made its international debut in 1938 at the Central American and Caribbean Games in Panama.
Since its inception in the tournament from 1975 to 2004, in its twelve consecutive attempts, Venezuela failed to make it into the top three positions. Also, it is the only participating team to remain outside of the top ten of Copa America’s fixtures. For the first time, Venezuela reached the semi-finals of the 2011 Copa America finals by defeating a strong opponent Chile with 2-1 points.
However even the team had shown a lackluster performance, it is the only country from outside the three CONMEBOL teams (Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay) to reach the finals of the FIFA World cup competition. Jose Luis Dolgetta is the only Venezuelan player to score four goals in a single 1993 tournament. He is also rewarded at the continental competition. Also son of Giancario, Carlos Maldonado, is renowed as the top goal scorer in the 2007 Copa America event.
