Three BIG Thursday headlines

1. 2016 Copa America comes to the United States!

CONMEBOL announced Wednesday that it will hold a special Copa America in 2016, and the tournament will be held in the United States (SURELY, Miami's Sun Life Stadium will be a site). The event, to commemorate CONMEBOL's 100th anniversary, will include the 10 South American teams, plus the US, Mexico and 4 more CONCACAF teams based on rankings. The tournament will be held in July 2016. The regular 2015 and 2019 Copa Americas will still go on as scheduled.

2. Big teams go down in Champions League

Manchester City lost 3-1 to Ajax. Real Madrid lost 2-1 to Dortmund. Arsenal lost 2-0 to Schalke.

3. Wondo goes for record

Chris Wondolowski of the San Jose Earthquakes is one goal shy of tying the MLS record, which was set in 1996 by Roy Lassiter of the now-defunct Tampa Bay Mutiny. Lassiter scored 27 goals that season. Wondo has 26. He plays his final regular season game Saturday against Portland.
