The Argentina captain and the Colombia forward shared the award after bagging four goals each.

Lionel Messi

As well as captaining his side to victory and taking the top scorer award, the legendary forward was also voted Best Player. Messi had finished on the losing side in three previous Copa América finals (2007, 2015 and 2016), as well as the 2014 World Cup final, so, aged 34, this tournament represented a huge personal triumph.

Copa America: Most popular markets

Argentina and Brazil are always heavily favoured when the Copa America comes around, with the two countries boasting legends such as Diego Maradona, Pele, Gabriel Batistuta, Ronaldinho, Lionel Messi and Neymar over the years. But the tournament isn't always predictable and there has been plenty of success for other South American nations over the years.

Uruguay has actually won as many titles as Argentina - 15 in total - six more than the Brazilians, and Chile won back-to-back titles in 2015 and 2016. Of the 10 South American soccer nations, only Ecuador and Venezuela have never gone all the way.

Guest teams are usually invited to compete in the tournament, although only Mexico, in 1993 and 2001, has reached the final and none have ever lifted the trophy.

You’ll be able to get good odds on teams other than Brazil and Argentina ahead of the tournament, so keep an eye on the form of the likes of Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile and Colombia leading into the 2024 event.

Ecuador

6/10/2024 - 7/12/2024

Ecuador is widely expected to host the 2024 Copa América due to CONMEBOL's host rotation order.

However, president Alejandro Dominguez stated that although Ecuador had been nominated, it had not been officially selected, with neighbors Peru also expressing its intention to host the tournament.

The 2024 Copa América was originally scheduled for 2023, but due to the pandemic, and in order to coincide with UEFA Euro 2024, it has been moved to the summer of 2024.
