Jermaine Jones - Jefferson Montero - US national team - black kit - Ecuador

They did it. The USA not only advanced from Group A of the Copa America Centenario with their victory over Paraguay, but they finished in first place after Costa Rica shocked Colombia 3-2 in the final match of the group.


As the top team in Group A, the Americans now know they will take on Ecuador, the second-place finishers from Group B, a spot they guaranteed with a 4-0 win over Haiti on Sunday afternoon.


The Copa America Centenario began with 16 teams. By the end of Tuesday night, June 14, the field will be cut in half with only eight nations advancing to the quarterfinal knockout stage -- the top two finishers in each of the four groups.


Here's how the quarterfinal picture is shaping up:


Clinched quarterfinal berth:


  • Group A: USA, Colombia
  • Group B: Peru, Ecuador
  • Group C: Mexico, Venezuela
  • Group D: Argentina, Chile


Officially eliminated from Copa America in group stage


  • Group A: Paraguay, Costa Rica
  • Group B: Haiti, Brazil
  • Group C: Uruguay, Jamaica
  • Group D: Bolivia, Panama


What about the rest of the field?


  • GROUP C: With both Mexico (6 pts) and Venezuela (6 pts) already in the quarterfinals, their match on Monday night will determine who will go through as C1 or C2.
  • GROUP D: With Argentina (6 pts) already mathematically through, all eyes will be on the Chile vs. Panama match on Tuesday night. Chile (3 pts), the defending champs, will join Argentina with a win or draw. Panama (3 pts) need a win at all costs.
