2024 Copa America : What more to look out for, US hosts, and Messi looking to repeat

On Saturday, July 10, 2021, at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil’s Maracana stadium hosted the Copa America soccer final, Argentina’s Lionel Messi celebrates with the trophy as his team defeats Brazil 1-0. Argentina, led by Messi, will look to win their third consecutive major tournament as they defend their Copa America crown, while Brazil is hoping that 17-year-old Endrick will succeed alongside Rodrygo and Vinícius Júnior.


Will Messi add yet another significant prize to his already impressive career, or will they fall to the strength of South American soccer?
