Atletico Madrid players to watch at the Copa America

Atletico have a total of five players competing at the Copa America

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Here are Atletico's players at the Copa America. Plenty of football to help you get over the summer and forget about the Champions League. We were going to add in Edinson Cavani into this but felt it might be a little premature.

Diego Godin & Jose Gimenez - Both are set to start at the centre of Uruguay's defense.

  • June 5: Mexico vs. Uruguay
  • June 9: Uruguay vs. Venezuela
  • June 13: Uruguay vs. Jamaica

Filipe Luis - Much like at Atletico Madrid, Filipe Luis is the bona-fide starting left-back for his national side.

  • June 4: Brazil vs. Ecuador
  • June 8: Brazil vs. Haiti
  • June 12: Brazil vs. Peru

Augusto Fernandez & Matias Kranevitter - It all depends on whether Tata Martino plays a 4-3-3 or not. If he does, Mascherano will most likely sit in front of the back four but if another midfielder is needed, one of Atletico's newest signings will be called upon.

  • June 7: Argentina v Chile
  • June 11: Argentina v Panama
  • June 15: Argentina v Bolivia
