The 2015 Copa America kicked off last night with a match between hosts, Chile, and Ecuador, Chile won the match 2-0. The Copa America is the world’s oldest continental competition beginning in 1916 and is a huge part of football’s heritage as it is a key event in the build-up to the first World Cup in 1930. Chile were one of the four countries, along with Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay, who contested that first tournament, held in Argentina, which was won by Uruguay who were also the most recent winners.
