Two Manchester United players heading to Copa América

Two Manchester United players have been called up for the Copa América in Argentine duo Ángel Di María and Marcos Rojo. It remains to be seen how much game time they'll get, though in their friendly win over Ecuador last month, Argentina coach Tata Martino fielded both -- Rojo at full-back and Di María out in a wide role.

While you're at it, you'll be able to keep an eye on supposed United target Nicolás Otamendi, who has also made the Argentina squad.

Elsewhere, Colombia boss José Pekerman has called up his side's captain Radamel Falcao, though as he no longer plays for United, we're no longer obliged to care. Conspicuous by his absence is Ecuador's Antonio Valencia, who will miss the tournament after having had surgery to remove screws from his ankle.

The tournament, which is to be held in Chile, kicks off on June 11, and runs for just under a month. Uruguay head in as defending champions, but it would be something of a surprise were they to defend the title they won back in 2011.
