The 2021 Copa America is just around the corner. Along with the UEFA Euros, the Copa also provides the world with some fantastic and entertaining football fixtures for a month before the regular seasons of club football resume. This year’s Copa America should be extremely competitive given the freshly formed teams that have come into action to face off in Brazil, are Barcelona fans should be especially thrilled with two new signings ready to showcase their skills in the tournament.

This year’s Copa America will be a massive opportunity for the likes of Brazil or Argentina to make a statement. It’s another great opportunity for Argentina to finally land an international trophy under captain Lionel Messi, especially with the six-time Ballon d’Or winner preparing for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
It is absurd that one of the best, if not the best, footballers to grace the field has yet to win a single international trophy. Many argue that this lack of international success is what keeps Messi away from being recognized as the greatest ever.
This is also one of the talking points for comparisons with Cristiano Ronaldo, as the latter has won The UEFA Euros and the UEFA Nations Cup with Portugal.
Brazil have won the Copa America recently along with the Olympics as Neymar Jr featured in a massive manner for them. The Brazilians look to be in top form. It won’t be a surprise if they end up winning this year’s competition too. Their current form is very good with the former Barcelona star Neymar in brilliant form.
Other teams like Chile and Uruguay also have solid teams in order to make a statement. South America’s biggest football competition has never failed to disappoint so far and it looks like it will be another year of massive entertainment from the South American footballers.
