Argentina Host The First-Ever 'Dwarf Copa America' Tournament

Argentina Host The First-Ever 'Dwarf Copa America' Tournament

History has been made. Teams from Chile, Colombia, the United States, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Peru and Bolivia have come together to play the first ever 'Dwarf Copa America.'

The tournament bids to tackle discrimination and social prejudices, as the likes of Lionel Messi have already boosted the competition's reputation.

Argentina's captain Facundo Rojas claims they are the most discriminated against group in the world, but are capable of playing good football:

"We belong to the most discriminated against group in the world. We have managed to change that, to show what we are capable of -- to play football, to work and to study,"

Another Argentina player, Diego Serpentini, claims that Messi has already heard good things:

"I was able to meet Leo Messi and he said he had heard good things about the tournament. If he has heard about it, it means the tournament is generating a lot of interest."

A member of Brazil's team, Oromar Miranda, said it is a dream come true to be playing in Buenos Aires:

"For years we never even dreamed we would be playing an official football match one day, so it is very important for us."

Keep up the good work, guys.
