These are just some of the biggest idols from the countries that are competing for winning this version of the oldest soccer competition in the world. We did not expect to see teams like Peru and Venezuela taking over the ‘big ones’ and because of that we like to give them our sincere congratulations and offer you an apology for not sharing any artwork for these countries’ soccer stars, we’re going to dig a little more into this to see if there’s anything we can share with you.

So, we hope you liked these illustrations and now let’s see which team is going to obtain the title of the best soccer team in America, thanks for visiting us.
