The Venezuelan national soccer team has a rocky road to get back into contention in CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifying, the team currently sits eighth in the standings, having won 1 game out of 4. Nonetheless, it is still early, and Venezuela will try to make a push to get into qualifying positions.

In the middle of the year, Venezuela will partake in the 2021 Copa America in Group B against Colombia, Brazil, Qatar, Ecuador, and Peru. A tall order for the Vino Tinto but one they will have to meet head-on since Venezuela knows all too well there is no forgiveness in CONMEBOL competitions.

While Venezuela has improved over the last decade, they have dropped their form as of late and will need to get back on track and that task is now in the hands of Portuguese coach José Peseiro of Sporting CP fame. Let’s take a look at the Venezuela National team schedule in 2021.
