What happened to Surinam and Guyana? Let me guess they're going to be part of CONCACAF aren't they? Still make more sense to invite them though.

i can only surmise that Qatar's inclusion is some sort of FIFA plan to make it look like they're a footballing nation ahead of 2022

Copa America 2016 was held in the USA and included US, Mexico and 4 other Caribbean/central american teams. This sort of thing is not new news. Since 1993, its included other countries - Mexico have played in every iteration since then.

Japan couldn't make it one time relatively recently, so I imagine that's why they're here now.

Can't defend Qatar mind.

Surinam and Guyana are in CONCACAF, as is French Guiana. But I think French Guiana is an overseas department of France so there's a chance that they might do things differently.

With Japan playing Qatar in the Asian Cup final, the Copa is guaranteed to have the Asian champions and runner up in it as guests.
