The 2021 Copa America will be Lionel Scaloni’s second attempt in the tournament. The former manager Jorge Sampaoli led the Argentina team to a third-place finish in 2019.
Argentina has had a difficult time transitioning to a new generation of players, but they appear to be on the right track. La Albiceleste will face Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, and Bolivia in Group A of the Copa America 2021.
Argentina have already played Chile, Lionel Messi scored a spectacular free kick, dribbled his way through the Chilean defence, and consistently created chances for his Argentina teammates. The result wasn’t as expected for Lionel Scaloni’s team, the team was held in a 1-1 draw against the side. Despite this result, the game at Rio de Janeiro’s Nilton Santos stadium included a memorial to Argentine football legend Diego Maradona, who died in November at the age of 60.
During the Copa America 2021 tournament, Lionel Messi will turn 34. This may be his final chance to win a trophy for Argentina. Despite all of his individual achievements and club trophies with Barcelona, he remarked before the start of Copa America 2021 that winning with his national team is the biggest ambition of his incredible career.
