How do they chose players for South American Championship? I checked rosters and couldn't see any familiar names. My guess is that players that play in domestic leagues are called up <!-- sBlink -->[img]{SMILIES_PATH}/blink.gif[/img]<!-- sBlink -->

I'm not really sure, but it could be that or B squads in the case of the strongest teams (Brazil, Argentina, etc).
