Copa America best: Winners (14)
It has been a long time since Argentina last lifted a major title - 18 years to be precise. Now given the chance to break their duck on home soil, La Albiceleste would become the outright leaders in Copa America history if they were to pick up the title again. With Maradona’s efforts at the World Cup behind them, Batista intends to get his side to play like Barcelona to get the best out of World Player of the Year Lionel Messi and he has one of the competition’s most talented squads at his disposal.
One to Watch: Sergio Aguero. With Messi hogging the limelight, Aguero may not get much of a chance to shine, however as he is currently seeking a move away from Atletico Madrid, he will be keen to impress.
Bolivia, Colombia, & Costa Rica after the break.
