While focus in Europe is on Euro 2020, another major continental tournament is about to get underway – and there will be Aston Villa interest as well.
The Copa America was due to be played in Colombia and Argentina but protests against the government in the former and rising Covid-19 cases in the latter has seen the tournament hastily shifted to Brazil.
Villa will have two players in the South American competition – goalkeeper Emi Martínez, of Argentina, and midfielder Douglas Luiz, of the new host country.
New signing Emiliano Buendía did not make the final cut for the tournament, despite being with the squad for the recent World Cup qualifiers.
Like the Euros, the action will be shown live free-to-air after the BBC picked up the rights to the tournament.
Matches will be shown on the BBC Sport website and on the iPlayer service.
With the time difference, the majority of matches will kick-off at 10pm and 1am UK time and therefore won’t clash with the Euros.
Here’s when you can watch Brazil and Argentina in the group phase.
