Good morning, America. It's June 10, 2016. Welcome to the VICE Sports World News Roundup. Be sure to stop by every morning for more headlines from around the world.

Yesterday in the Copa America, 15-time Copa America champion Uruguay lost 0-1 to Venezuela, a team that has never made the Copa America final and whose country is in the midst of an economic meltdown.

Mexico also beat Jamaica 2-0. Chicharito scored (duh). Here is our hero in action, as he puts Jamaica to the sword.

Someone made a video of all of US national team forward Gyasi Zardes's first touches over the last three USMNT games. It is a damning document.

Euro 2016 hasn't even started yet (it starts later today) but already the French police had to break out the teargas in order to settle down some unruly English fans.

Nike has a long tradition of producing high-end soccer ads just prior to a major tournament. As much as I hate posting advertisements in here, they're always pretty fun.

Someone mapped the birthplaces of all the players taking part in Euro 2016. The accompanying text is in German, but they're maps so that doesn't matter. It gives a pretty fascinating look at how immigration, and the Balkan war, has changed Europe over the past 30 or so years.

It's a little dark, but here's a photo of my favorite track and field event, the steeplechase, during the NCAA national championship.
