THEY’VE conquered the Euros and the World Cup already, but Spain could soon be adding the Copa America to their trophy cabinet.

In a bizarre bid to make the South American tournament more commercially successful, organisers are desperate to ignore geography and get Spain competing.

Portugal, Japan, China, Mexico and the US are also reportedly being sounded out over their availability to play in the tournament.

Japan and China’s attendance would boost commercial opportunities around the world, while the added stardust of Cristiano Ronaldo and David Silva would rake in global viewers.
The 2019 Copa America will be the final one in the ‘odd’ years, with the tournament having a five year hiatus before returning in 2024.
