2016 is a big year in America in both the political and sporting worlds.

While the eyes of the world will be fixed on the country on November 8th, football fans will be kept focused on the Copa America Centenario that is taking place in the country in June.

Traditionally a South American tournament, organisers CONMEBOL have invited North American teams to take part in a one-off tournament to celebrate the centenary of Uruguay winning the first competition.

Argentine television station TyC Sports are broadcasting the event domestically as excellent used a speech for the Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump about South Americans coming to America to cause harm to the country.

In the context of the ad, Argentina will be one of the favourites to win the tournament, as Jurgen Klinsmann's American side will try and battle South America's finest.

The tournament begins on June 3rd when the hosts play Colombia in Santa Clara, with the final taking place outside New York on June 26th.
