UN Data: More than 84% believe that La Vinotinto will be champion in the Copa América

The senior men's soccer team has managed to qualify for the Quarterfinals of the Copa América taking place in the United States.

La Vinotinto They entered this phase of the tournament thanks to an excellent performance in the Group Phase where they accumulated three wins in a row and finished with nine points at the top of Group B.

The national team began with a victory against Ecuador with a score of 2-1, to later account for Mexico by the minimum. Finally, he closed his participation in this phase of the tournament with a 3-0 win against his counterpart from Jamaica, which allowed him to seal his passport to the Quarterfinals.

In this last match, forward Salomón Rondón equaled José Luis Dolguetta as Venezuela's all-time top scorer in the Copa América with 6 goals. In addition to playing his 107th game with the shirt Vinotinto.

An interesting fact is that the national team needed 44 years (from 1967 to 2011) to win its first three games in this continental competition, the longest in a national team tournament. However, in this edition he achieved three victories in a row in just 8 days.

During this last match, Kervin Andrade who debuted with the senior team at 19 years, two months and 16 days, became the third youngest Venezuelan footballer to provide an assist in Conmebol competitions, both in qualifying and in the Copa América.

Venezuela is the only one without a Cup

Venezuela's first participation in the Copa América was in 1975 and from that moment until now it has not been able to lift the trophy, whose top winners are Uruguay and Argentina, with 15 titles respectively.

It is followed by another power in world football: Brazil, with 9 titles obtained.

Other winners have been: Chile, Paraguay and Peru, with 2 titles each; while Colombia and Bolivia with 1 title, respectively.

To date, no invited team has been able to emerge as champion of the continental tournament, which has had teams from Europe, Asia, Africa, North America and the Caribbean.

New challenge

However, La Vinotinto is experiencing an excellent moment in the continental tournament, which has been dragging on since the qualifiers carried out by the South American Football Confederation (Conmebol) for the 2026 World Cup that will be hosted by three countries: the United States, Mexico and Canada.

In this process, the Venezuelan team finds itself with 9 points in fourth place in the classification table, accumulating two victories, three draws and one defeat.

That is why, before their next rival, the Canadian team; The national team will appeal to its streak against teams from the Confederation of North America, Central America and the Caribbean (Concacaf) to earn its ticket to the semifinal round.

For five years, the senior team has not lost against teams from this part of the continent, adding 5 wins and two draws in 7 games played.

In this way the possibilities that La Vinotinto, hand in hand with the Faith of their fans, can continue giving something to talk about, at least statistically, they are very high.

However, in UN Data We also join this passion for football and we wanted to know what the readers of Últimas Noticias on this topic.

That is why we carried out a survey on our website and through social networks between July 1 and 4. 661 people participated in it and below we offer you the results obtained:

Team rating

We began by investigating how our readers viewed the team's performance in the first round. For 88,7% of the participants, those led by Fernando “Bocha” Batista have been better than in the qualifying round.

For 10,7% of those surveyed, the actions of La Vinotinto It can be classified as equal to the playoffs and less than 1% believe they are worse.

Shall we go to the Semifinal?

Later we wanted to see what the assessment is of the next match against Canada. The question was simple: Do you think we can win? To which 94,3% responded affirmatively.

This shows that not only the aforementioned statistics against Concacaf teams reflect the high possibilities of achieving a victory, but that the majority of people trust that Venezuela can overcome this match.

Venezuela Vs. Argentina

Already playing a little more on the stages and assuming that we managed to beat Canada. Venezuela could face none other than the current World Champion, the powerful Argentina, who has great figures such as Lionel Messi, Lautaro Martínez, Ángel Di Maria and Enzo Fernández, among others, on their roster.

To do this, the albiceleste would have to beat Ecuador and thus advance to this round of the tournament.

In this sense, we couldn't help but ask our readers how they see this panorama, specifically, if Venezuela could give Lionel Scaloni's team the chance to reach the final.

Venezuela has never been in this instance, its best participation in the tournament was the fourth place achieved in the 2011 edition, held in Argentina.

90,9% of those surveyed responded that they can beat the world champion.

First America's Cup

Finally, we wanted to know if our readers believe that Venezuela could win the continental Cup for the first time. Again 84,1% of respondents answered affirmatively to this question.

Here it is evident that the current slogan of the team “Mano Tengo Fe” is really a sentiment of many Venezuelans who hope to continue dreaming of the triumphs of their team.

However, beyond the scenarios and how this movie ends for our players, what is certain is that Venezuela, only with its performance in the first round, points to the best rise in the ranking of the International Football Federation (FIFA).

The national team has managed to climb more than 18 points, which would take it from 54th place to 36th place.
