- SALTA, July 10, 2011 (AFP) - Venezuela's national team, surprisingly at the top of Group B of the Copa America, consolidated its successful evolution and, far from its past as 'Cinderella' is encouraged to give a hard battle to the big teams.After two disputed dates, the ‘vinotinto’(red wine) come to the last round, the qualifying day, with 4 points, over strong candidates such as Brazil and Paraguay (with 2 points), its rival in the closing day, and Ecuador (1 point).In a contest full of unexpected results, Venezuela gave the note in the debut to snatch a draw of Brazil, and then overcome by the minimum (1-0) against Ecuador, so come well off enough to seal against Paraguay.Far from what happened years ago, when Venezuela usually ended at the bottom of the table and suffered thrashings in every game, in this Copa America is seen as a well-structured team."Venezuela is an offensive team, and beyond that has arguments in defense, is balanced and has enough to win games”, said Farias.Another strong point in the evolution of Venezuela is the consolidation of a generation of players, many with experience in the outside, as Juan Arango (Borussia Monchengladbach, Germany) and Nicholas 'Miku' Fedor (Getafe, Spain)."This, becoming leaders, we are taking it naturally. We had the proper training and we are showing the work done. It is true that the 2011 Copa America is fairly even", said Oswaldo Vizcarrondo, the Venezuela’s central defender.
