Yeah but the "new" format that I proposed doesn't necessarily have to be that way. The 3 teams from Brazil and Argentina can be the head of the groups (for the first 6 grups) and then have maybe the Mexican team and the previous year champion to be the remaining two heads of the group to...
PG, I think it should be as follows:
-3 teams per CONMEBOL country (there are 10 competing countries) = 30
-1 Mexican team
-Previous year champion
That brings a total of 32 teams, so the World Cup format can be used (8 groups of 4, then the knockout stages)
You're probably watching the wrong tournament. The goal average is very high and I enjoyed most of the games. Besides, nobody is forcing you to watch it, so don't even bother with the semis and the final.
I'm very upset with the result. It's not like Mexico didn't deserve to score six (it could have been worse), it's the fact that the match never gave a chance to show what Paraguay can do with 11 men.
