South America's premiere international tournament is in full flow and here's how you can watch it

We are half way through the group stage in Brazil and the big boys are starting to emerge as favourites to win Copa America. The competition was initially mired by chaos due to Covid-19, like many events across the world this past year, with initial hosts Argentina and Colombia stripped of hosting rights. Brazil was finally chosen to host the tournament despite its own huge infection and death rates. All Copa America games will be played behind closed doors as the continent still wages war with the virus.

Lionel Messi's Argentina currently top group A and current holders Brazil are leading Group B. In total, 10 countries are at the tournament (after outside invitees Qatar and Australia pulled out), five to each group. The top four will progress to the Quarter Finals with only two sides crashing out in the group stage -  Ecuador and Bolivia as it stands, with a lot of football left to play.

For UK fans, Copa America provides late night entertainment which doesn't clash with Euro 2020. It's perfect for those night owls desperate for just one more game. The likes of Messi, Neymar, Alexis Sanchez and Luis Suarez are present at the tournament and with only one 0-0 draw so far from 12 games, you can expect goals and attacking quality to keep you up late.

The best thing about Copa America is that you can watch it completely free online via live streaming. Here's how:

Big matches coming up at Copa America

Every game at the tournament is sure to provide some flair and excitement, that's the nature of South American football. Of course the matches will miss that carnival atmosphere which fans in that part of the world typically bring, but an abundance of skill and quality on the pitch should more than make up for that. In the early hours of Thursday morning, we have hosts Brazil looking to make it three wins from three in Group B as they take on Colombia with PSG star Neymar in search of his first golden boot. 2015 and 2016 champions Chile are unbeaten in their first three games and hope to keep that momentum going in their Group A clash with Paraguay after midnight Thursday/Friday morning. In the wee hours on Tuesday, it's top versus bottom in Group A as Argentina face Bolivia. Staggeringly the South American giants haven't won a Copa America since 1993 and Lionel Messi has never got his hands on the trophy. Could this be their year?

Those three matches and many more are available for you to watch completely free via live stream all the way until the final on July 10 from Rio De Janeiro. Here's a short list of what's coming up from Copa America:

Date Time Match
27 June 22:00 Brazil vs Ecuador
27 June 22:00 Venezuela vs Peru
29 June 01:00 Bolivia vs Argentina
