Meanwhile in Iquique...

While eight CONCACAF teams prepare for the CONCACAF U-17 Championship, South American qualifying is already underway in Iquique, Chile.

Last night, Brazil stifled Paraguay 4-0 in the tournament opener behind two goals from Coutinho.

In the second game of the night, Columbia - former home of U.S. head coach Wilmer Cabrera - got off to a flying start against Bolivia, scoring a goal in just the second minute. But a 74th minute equalizer from Bolivia forced Columbia to settle for a 1-1 draw.

Group B action begins today as Argentina squares off against Venezuela and Chile looks to use their home field advantage against Uruguay.
