Yesterday, we kicked off our coverage of the Copa America with a preview of Group A, featuring Argentina, Colombia, Bolivia and Costa Rica. Today, the focus shifts to Group B, featuring bookies' second favourites Brazil. Let's see what the group has in store. Don't forget, you can view our full range of Copa America merchandise by visiting our main site.
The history: Despite being the most successful nation on the global stage, Brazil have historically flattered to deceive at continental level. They've won just eight Championships, compared with 14 each for Uruguay and Argentina. That said, four of those eight have come in the last five editions, with the Brazilians winning each of the last two. They will be going into the tournament with every intention of improving on a disappointing 2010 World Cup in South Africa, so write them off at your peril.
The star players: All the talk in the run up to this one has been about the boy wonder, Neymar Santos (pictured above after scoring recently against Scotland). As he looks set to seal a big money move abroad, the Copa America could prove to be the perfect shopping window. Along with captain Lucio, Robinho, whose early career followed a similar trajectory to Neymar, is the most experienced member of the squad. He has just undergone a season of rejuvenation under Massimiliano Allegri at AC Milan and the pair together could be dynamite.
One to watch: Scouts had been flocking to Brazil to see Paulo Henrique Ganso turn out for Santos until a long term knee injury struck him down last summer. On the comeback trail, he's been linked with a big money move to Milan in January. Tall, elegant and with a sublime touch, we're hoping Ganso will show us what all the fuss is about in Argentina.
Impress your mates: Brazil's former coach Dunga is so called because that's the Portuguese for Dopey. His uncle coined the name when Dunga was a kid as he believed he'd never grow beyond the size of Snow White's favourite Dwarf.
The history: Not only have Ecuador failed to win the Copa America, they've never even made the final. Their best performance was reserved for 1993's tournament, when they reached the last four as the hosts. The statistic is surprising, considering the Ecuador side of the past ten years is widely regarded as their best ever. But with many of them now in retirement, it's a team in transition.
The star players: The squad is largely home based, but there are a couple of names that fans of European football will recognise. Luis Antonio Valencia (above) is their star man and having impressed on his return from injury towards the end of Manchester United's season, he'll be hoping for a busy tournament. Top scorer Christian Benitez, too, has a point to prove, following an indifferent spell on loan at Birmingham City two seasons ago.
One to watch: Eyebrows were raised when Sven-Goran Eriksson splashed out £5million on Felipe Caicedo in 2008. He failed to make an impact at Manchester City, but has impressed many since his move to Spain, where his goals kept Levante in La Liga. Keep your eyes peeled for the big front man.
Impress your mates: Ecuadorian football was rocked in the build up to the 2006 World Cup when the team's doctor was found to be 'people smuggling' by issuing fake visas to people trying to escape the country, under the national team banner.
The history: Paraguay have won the Copa America twice: way back in 1953 and 1979 and have failed to make the Semi Final since 1989. After making the World Cup Quarter Final last year, though, they will be hoping to maintain their good tournament form.
The star player: Despite his stalled career in England, Roque Santa Cruz is the darling of the Paraguayan faithful. We're excited to see Lucas Barrios (pictured), though. Born in Argentina, he gained Paraguayan citizenship just before the World Cup and has just had an excellent season in Germany, helping Borussia Dortmund waltz to the Bundesliga title.
One to watch: Paraguay have triumphed at the Milk Cup, one of the world's premier youth tournaments, three times in the last ten years and the current squad is built around those teams. Having spent his formative years in Germany, we're looking to Nelson Valdez (now 27) to make good on the promise of his youth.
Impress your mates: One of Paraguay's star players, the prolific Salvador Cabanas, was shot in the head in the run up to the 2010 World Cup, whilst in a bar in Mexico City. Cabanas has not played since.
The history: Venezuela have traditionally been the runt of the South American litter, having never qualified for a World Cup and only making out of the Copa America group stages once (2007 - as hosts). Development of football in the northerly nation has been impressive, though, with investment in infrastructure coinciding with real progression in player quality.
The star players: The undisputed star of Venezuelan football is Juan Arango, who is now plying his trade with Borussia Monchengladbach having spent five successful years with Real Mallorca in Spain. As captain and talisman, Arango will need to be at his inspired best if Venezuela are to progress.
One to watch: Well, two actually. Our attention has been drawn to a couple of starlets in the Venezuelan squad: namely José Rondón and Yohandry Orozco. Rondón was one of the bright sparks in a disappointing season for newly minted Malaga in Spain's La Liga, whereas Orozco has been snapped up by Felix Magath's Wolfsburg in Germany.
Impress your mates: Between their initial entry to the series in 1966 and their defeat of Ecuador in 1994, Venezuela registered only one victory in South America's World Cup Qualifiers. The win came over Bolivia in 1982.
