The coronavirus has forced to that the European football cessation completely his activity. All the big leagues of the continent have stopped, the same that the Champions League and the Europe League. The following, as they say several sources, could be suspend the Eurocopa and postpone it until the summer of 2021. This Tuesday there is a very important meeting in which it will speak of this possibility and of the way that take from now.

In south America still have not had to takes measures so strict, but already there is the one who wants to do it. River Plate, for example, has denied to be followed playing and think that the best would be that the AFA stopped also the competition. With the Glass background America, across the pond are very concerned by this situation that is living in Europe, since it could touch them to them in a quite next future.

Precisely by this, as it aims 'Sportive World', the tournament of selections of sudamérica could have to postpone to 2021, the same that the Eurocopa. The first reason has to see with the protagonists of the game, the players. The big majority of the footballers that will attend to this competition play in Europe and right now are stopped by the suspension of his championships in Europe.

If the Eurocopa peligra because the calendar of League and European competitions have to lengthen and no of time to that contest , with the Glass America happens exactly the same. Without the players of the another side of the ocean, is impossible that the selections suramericanas conform his teams with normality. Do a tournament without the big stars of each combined is not what wishes , by what seems better option postpone it a year.

The cold could help to that the coronavirus propagate

Besides, also it is necessary to have in they explain the temperature to the hour to measure the scope that could have the COVID-19. In Europe thinks that with the arrival of the summer and of the heat the contagions will diminish and the situation will be more controlled. The problem for south America is that in June there is winter, by what would be more feasible that this illness can turn into a pandemia, just as it has sucedido in Spain, Italy or France.

Play without public, as it has done in Europe in several parties, is not an option for a tournament of these dimensions. Do it with normality neither is an alternative by fault of this virus. By all this, the normal would be that in the weeks to come it announced that Argentina and Colombia will organise the Glass America in 2021 and no in 2020, that was what was thought from a principle.
