“… Among the fans of America there is everything, even gamines and robbers who have also threatened me … I reiterated that I present evidence and hopefully this will not happen to older people.” Tulio Gomez, Americas top shareholder, responds to those who believe that America was favored to be champion in 2019: More news on MSN:
